This past season Gostkowski went 35-37 on field goals this past season, and was voted to his third career Pro Bowl.
The team released a statement that said, “Stephen has been extremely productive and a vital component to our success since joining the team in 2006.”
This past season Gostkowski became the Patriots all-time leading point scorer and has accumulated 1,179 career points.

Last season he made a staggering 4-5 50 plus yard field goals. For his career, Gostkowski has made 86.8% of his field goals.Read more... Join the Conversation...
