Jansen has been with the Panthers since 2009, when the team worked out a trade with the Green Bay Packers for him. He has had an impressive run with over 1,000 snaps and only one bad snap in that time period. He also earned himself a trip to the Pro Bowl in 2013.
According to Ian Rapoport, the deal is worth a total of 5.5 million dollars and the average salary of $1,100,000 which would be tied for the fifth highest salary among long snappers.
Jansen said after signing his new contract: "I feel honored that Coach (Ron) Rivera, Mr. (Dave) Gettleman and Mr. (Jerry) Richardson trust me in the role that I play on this team. I want to be here. It’s a great organization. We’ve made Charlotte our home for the past seven years and going forward long after football is done, this will be home for us."
He also received plenty of congratulations on Twitter once the news broke from his teammates.
