From Tommy Silverstein:

-With all their draft picks signed and no veteran holdouts pending, the #Packers are $11 million under the salary cap. That should give them room to do the Greg Jennings and Clay Matthews deals this year.

They'll be able to burn some of the charges in 2012, but they'll still have to amortize signing bonuses because those deals will not be for chump change.

There will be significant upfront money paid if they are able to reach agreements with both players.

Matthews is only slated to make a Walmart like $800K this year.


That last part is incredible.


Not really, it's pretty normal for a late 1st rounder.


I think he is saying its incredible in the fact that Matthews hasn't said a peep about his contract the whole time (even though he has clearly outplayed it)


To me it just means he's smart and gets it. Complaining in public gains him nothing and contractually he really doesn't have the leverage to push the issue. I'm sure he's let it be known in house that he'd like it re-done, but there is no reason to take that crap to the media and air dirty laundry in public.
