It looks like Chris Jones will be doing the punting in Dallas through the 2017 season.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Jones has agreed to a two-year extension with the Cowboys.

He signed his restricted free agent tender for the 2015 season last week and, with the extension, he can earn up to $4.2 million over the next three years.

Jones’ deal comes with $750,000 guaranteed.

Jones has been in Dallas since 2011, but he’s only served as the team’s full-time punter since 2013. In the past two seasons, Jones averaged 45.2 yards per punt and pinned opponents inside their own 20-yard line 51 times.
