    Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey has had a nice offseason.

    Back on January 23, Bailey was signed to a seven-year deal worth $22.5 million, $7.5 million of which is guaranteed. The deal also came with a $4 million signing bonus. Then, this week, Bailey got to mark something off his bucket list when he flew with the world famous Blue Angels.

    "Growing up, I've always wanted to come out and take a ride in one of these aircrafts," Bailey said, per NFL.com. "It's always been a dream of mine. It's just always something I've had on my bucket list."

    No word if landing such a long-term deal with the Cowboys was on Bailey’s bucket list, but he’s still pretty excited about that, too.

    "In The NFL, job security is at a premium, so anytime you can afford yourself that on some level, it's always nice to work something out," Bailey said. "But from a personal standpoint, (Dallas is) one of the best places to kick in the league. Eight of my games are inside, so that makes my job easier. It's a first-class organization. It's a good city, a good place to raise kids, so I couldn't be happier to stick around here a little longer."
