Bucs reach terms with Koenen on record deal

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms with Atlanta Falcons unrestricted free agentĀ Michael Koenen on the biggest contract in NFL history for a punter on Friday. The six-year deal is worth $19.5 million with $6.5 million guaranteed, according to a league source.

Koenen has spent all six of his NFL seasons in Atlanta.

Only the Raiders have spent more on a contract for a kicker or punter, with the four-year, $16 million deal (including $9 million guaranteed) they gave to punter Shane Lechler during the 2009 offseason.
