Kicker Dan Bailey signed a seven-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys that keeps the restricted free agent from reaching the open market next month.

Bailey, 25, signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and has made 88 of 98 field-goal attempts with Dallas.

During that span, Bailey has a franchsie-best eight game-winning field goals.

With a continued stretch of 90.8 percent accuracy on field goals, Bailey would surpass Mike Vanderjagt as the most accurate kicker in NFL history (86.5 percent).
