Lechler Setting New Standard for Punters


In his 12th NFL season, punter Shane Lechler was selected for his seventh Pro Bowl. He punted 78 times for 3,960 yards (50.8 average) and set a Raiders franchise record with an 80-yard punt. He also placed 27 punts inside the 20.

Lechler's 80-yarder came against the Chicago Bears at home on November 27, 2010. He broke the team record of 77 yards, which he tied in Week 1 against the Broncos.

Lechler needs 177 punts and 153 gross punting yards to pass Ray Guy for #1 all-time in Raiders history in both categories.

The veteran punter threw his first career touchdown pass on a fake field goal during the match up with the Cleveland Browns. TE Kevin Boss caught the pass from Lechler and took it into the end zone for a 35-yard touchdown.

Lechler was selected by USA Football to the 2011 USA Football All-Fundamentals Team. USA Football selects 26 NFL Players – 11 offense, 11 defense, four special teams – who exhibit exemplary football techniques for youth players to emulate.
