    The Dallas Cowboys have extended kicker Dan Bailey through the 2020 season, the team announced on Thursday.

    After being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State in 2011, Bailey won the starting job in camp that year and hasn’t looked back. Through his three seasons with the Cowboys, he’s hit on 89 of 98 field goal attempts (a 90.8 percent success rate) and hasn’t missed an extra point in 123 attempts--pretty much a model of consistency on a very inconsistent team.

    For his career, Bailey has notched 15 games with three or more field goals and three games with four or more. He has made eight game-winners, which is the most in team history.

    Bailey has also handled the kickoffs since 2011, and has 106 touchbacks in 237 kicks.
