A three-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time All-Pro, Lee (6-2, 180) has established himself as one of the NFL’s most productive punters since entering the league. In 2011, he set the NFL single-season record in net punting average (44.0), while his gross average (50.9) ranked third in NFL history. Lee also set the 49ers single-game franchise records in both gross punting average (59.6) and net average (54.2) versus Seattle (9/11/11).
Lee has played in 128 games as a 49er, and holds the team records in all major punting categories: punts (723), yards (33,069), gross average (45.7), net average (38.9) and punts downed inside the 20-yard line (209). Since 2007, Lee’s gross punting average (47.9) and net average (40.7) both rank 2nd in the NFL in that span, while his total number of punts downed inside the 20-yard line (147) ranks 3rd.
The 29-year-old native of Westminster, SC, starred collegiately at the University of Pittsburgh, where he left as the school’s all-time leader in punts (244) and yards (10,353).
