EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (April 12, 2006) -- New York Giants punter Jeff Feagles will return for a 19th season in 2006.
Feagles, 40, had considered retiring after the 2005 season. He decided recently to return to the team after reaching an agreement under which he will be able to see his wife and four children in Arizona during the season, the team said.
Feagles holds the NFL record for career punts and set the league mark for consecutive games played last season when he played his 283rd, breaking the record set by Minnesota's Jim Marshall in the 1960s and '70s.
Last season he averaged 42 yards on 73 punts and put 26 punts inside opponents' 20-yard line, which put him in the top one-third in the league.
In addition to the Giants, Feagles has played for New England, Philadelphia, Arizona and Seattle.
