Tennessee Titans kicker Ryan Succop has agreed to terms on a multiyear contract extension.
Succop scored a career-high 136 points in 2017 to tie Al Del Greco's 1998 franchise record. His 35 field goals and 42 field-goal attempts were both career highs. He went 31 of 33 on extra-point attempts.
During the 2017 season Ivan Provorov Jersey , Succop set the NFL record for most consecutive successful field-goal attempts from inside 50 yards. His streak, which began in 2014, lasted 56 attempts to break the mark of 46 that Matt Bryant had set from 2013-15.
Succop has gone 90 of 104 on field-goal attempts in four seasons with the Titans. He spent five seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs before joining the Titans.
His 913 career points rank him 12th among all active players.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman are healthy and practicing at full speed again this week but will be held out for the third straight preseason game when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday.
Coach Dan Quinn said the team decided during the offseason not to play Jones, a two-time All-Pro receiver Tyler Seguin Jersey , and Freeman, a former Pro Bowl running back, in exhibitions, so it’s likely neither will suit up until Atlanta opens the regular season Sept. 6 at Philadelphia.
Quinn cited the injury history of Jones and Freeman as the reason to keep both players out of preseason games. He indicated that he likely won’t change his mind before the Falcons host Miami in the preseason finale Aug. 30.
“That’s the plan that we kind of set out with, and I’m staying true to that Jacob Markstrom Jersey ,” Quinn said Tuesday. “If there was something that I felt that they needed, then I would adjust that, but right now that’s where I’m headed.”
Quinn added that he’s not concerned that Jones and Freeman will face the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles without replicating game speed in preseason.
“In those two instances, I think that is the case that we can,” Quinn said. “If I had concerns that we wouldn’t be able to or I felt like it would be worth doing that Mathieu Perreault Jersey , then I certainly I would.”
Jones, who leads the NFL in yards receiving average since the Falcons drafted him sixth overall in 2011, started all 18 of Atlanta’s last season but didn’t practice much because of a hip flexor, a back injury and an ankle injury. He’s also had surgery twice on his right foot.
Freeman, who has scored 37 touchdowns in four seasons while averaging 1 Ondrej Kase Jersey ,207 yards from scrimmage, was sidelined twice last year by a concussion and is coming off a minor knee injury that didn’t require surgery.
Neither player has missed practice time since the team reported for training camp last month.
Matt Bryant, sidelined in preseason with an undisclosed injury, is expected to return to kicking on Wednesday. It’s unclear if he will be ready to play at Jacksonville.
Linebacker Deion Jones is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Reserve guard Ben Garland will play dress against the Jaguars.
