Matthews And Packers Nearing A Mega Deal

It’s sounding more and more like Packers fans can breathe easier when it comes to keeping LB Clay Matthews.

Adam Schefter is reporting that Matthews and the Pack are working on a deal that will get him 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.

The first day of Green Bays offseason workout program is April 15. Rodgers’ and Matthews’ agents are going to want their clients’ deals in place before the players step back on the field, according to sources.
