The Packers and outside linebacker Clay Matthews have come to terms on a long-term deal.
“Trivial amongst the recent tragic news, but happy to continue my career in Green Bay!,” Matthews wrote when he posted a pic of himself signing the contract on Twitter.
The contract is a huge one for the Fabio lookalike, as Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com says the deal will average “just north” of $13 million per season.
The four-time Pro Bowl LB is set to earn $3.73 million in base salary with a $40,000 workout bonus in 2013, the final season of his five-year, $13 million rookie contract.
Matthews is coming off a season in which he put up 13 sacks in just 12 games.
