Default Packers sign Matthews to long-term extension

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/packers...2290--nfl.html

The Packers did not announce terms of the extension, reported to be for five years, but the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said the deal is worth $66 million. That would put Matthews on par with Dallas outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, whose contract also averages $13 million per year.

I am sure Von's agent will be looking at this deal when it comes time to renegotiate his contract.

Well at least they didn't raise the bar with the Matthews deal. That benifits the Broncos in contract negotiations with Von.

Clay has played 4 seasons in the NFL. Time to get paid. Von has played only two.

Von will get paid after next year... I don't think he's even eligible for renegotiation yet.

Von signed a 4 year deal. In theory the Broncos could have him play through the 2014 season. Matthews played out his whole rookie contract.

Matthews is a good player, but there's something white trashy about him that makes me want to hurl.

I'd take his "white trashiness" and Jared Allen's too and smile the whole time, thanks.

I don't see that at all... Clay is literally as Southern California as it gets.

If anyone can pick up the "best sportsfigure performance in commercials" mantle after Manning hangs em up, it's him IMO.
