San Francisco Re-Sign Star Punter

The San Francisco 49ers drafted Australian punter Mitch Wishnowky in the fourth round of the 2019 draft out of Utah, and in 2022, he's competing on the final year of his rookie contract, one which he has greatly outplayed. Over that time, Wishonowsky has become one of the best and most consistent punters in the NFL, and it's because of that that San Francisco have re-signed him, keeping him by the bay until the end of the 2026 campaign.

The deal gives Wishnowsky just under $3 million per year, and the deal carries a total value of $13 million, and for a position that is so underrated, that's a great pay for one of the best in the game. Wishnowsky has had many highlights over the years, from big hits to dropping the ball down at the 1-yard line, and the team has now locked the position up for years to come.

Mitch also became the first Australian to score a point in the NFL, when he took over kicking duties from Robbie Gould in a game against the Seattle Seahawks, so it's safe to say that he can be a versatile special teamer for this team for years and years to come.
