Packers fans with Clay Matthews jerseys should be happy today, as Adam Schefter reports a deal is nearly done that will keep Matthews in cheese land.
Reports are Matthews will get at or north of $13 million a year in new money.
Matthews, 26, has 42.5 sacks in his four seasons with the Packers, including 13 last season. He has 204 tackles, seven forced fumbles and four interceptions in 58 career games since being drafted 26th overall in the 2009 draft out of USC.
The Packers are also working on an extension for Aaron Rodgers, with sources saying last week the sides are closing in on a long-term deal that would make the quarterback the highest-paid player in NFL history.
