Ten Million Dollars for the Foot of Kris Brown

The Houston Texans are making sure they have a solid place kicker in place for the foreseeable future, resigning Kris Brown to a 4-year deal worth a possible $10 million.
Brown, 32, hit 29-of-33 field goals last season (87.9 percent), a career-best conversion rate and the second straight season he had set a new personal standard for accuracy. In his career, Brown has connected on 231-of-294 field goals (78.6 percent).
Considering just how many games are decided by three points or less, it isn't surprising that the Texans are putting up this kind of dough for Brown.  One wonders just how much the pay increase ratchets up the pressure on Kris to perform.
