The extension makes Winchester the highest paid long snapper in the NFL. The former Sooner joined Kansas City in 2015 and hasn’t missed a game since then.
Winchester came to Oklahoma as a walk-on receiver in 2008. He then made the transition to long snapper in 2009 and continued down that path for the rest of his college career.
Winchester and Kansas City will enjoy a bye week following a four game win streak that has elevated them to first place in the AFC West.
