Clay Matthews, Green Bay Packers agree to $66 million extension

Clay Matthews and the Green Bay Packers have been working on a contract extension for a while now and it appears they finally have a deal. Multiple sources are now reporting the two sides have come to terms on a five-year, $66 million extension that will keep Matthews in Green Bay through 2018.

The deal is likely to include more than the $40 million in guaranteed money Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware received in 2009. Matthews was entering the final year of his contract, so the Packers wanted to get an extension done quickly.

Mission accomplished.Clay Matthews

In his first 58 NFL games, the 26-year-old Matthews has racked up 42.5 sacks while consistently terrorizing opposing offenses. He is the only player in Packers franchise history to earn a Pro Bowl selection in each of his first four seasons in the NFL.

While rushing the passer is certainly Matthews’ top duty, he is not simply a one-dimensional linebacker. The USC product is stout against the run, has only missed 17 tackles in his career (which is an incredibly low number for a guy who plays as much as he does) and he has developed into a leader. Matthews also has an impeccable record off the field.

This extension, while pricey, was a no-brainer for Green Bay.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that Matthews will make more than $28 million in the next calendar year thanks to his new deal. Other than that, full details of the contract aren’t yet available.

Now that the Matthews extension has been completed, the Packers can turn their focus to getting Aaron Rodgers’ deal done.
