I wouldn't say that he's one of our highest paid players. He only made $1.8 in salary, which is the 14th highest on the team. And after being grossly underpaid for years, I'd say that's market value. Especially when you consider that he's probably the best kickoff guy in the league (especially when you consider that he kicks field goals, which some don't).

The guy is clutch when it matters. He has only one miss in the 4th quarter and OT for his career. If not for him, we might have won 5 or 6 games last year.
