Punter Rocca signs RFA deal with Eagles
Punter Sav Rocca has signed his tender as a restricted free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Rocca, the former Australian rules star, set a franchise record last season when his net average was 38.3 yards. Over the last three seasons, he’s landed 74 punts inside the 20-yard line.
He was tendered at the low level, meaning he will receive $1.176 million. Rocca is the last of nine RFA’s tendered by the Eagles to sign his contract. Hey, he had the most miles to cover to get there and put his name on paper, though. He signed the deal after arriving from Australia. Sounds fair to us.
