Packers Ink NT Kenny Clark to Four-Year Extension

Packers Kenny Clark says he has always wanted to prove the value of nose tackles as complete players.

Now the Packers have given him a contract that showcases that.

The Packers announced Saturday they had signed the 24-year-old Clark to a contract extension without disclosing the length or terms of the deal.

Clark’s agent, Doug Hendrickson, confirmed an ESPN report that the 2016 first-round draft pick from UCLA agreed to terms on a deal worth $70 million, with a $25 million signing bonus.

“Over the years, I’ve just been trying to just, not get out of that (idea that) nose tackle is just a plug. you just plug the gap guy and all he’s worried about is run, and all that kind of stuff,” Clark said. “I’ve just been focused on pass rushing and being able to be an all-around player. I think this deal really solidifies that and really shows nose tackles can do both and get paid high. I’m just excited about it.”
