A lot of money but probably about right for Clay

When I saw the title my first impression was it's 5 years worth 13 million (as in 2+ mill per) Laughing

With his existing one year remaining he's now signed for 6 years ~70million.

Very nice numbers all around.

mad props to that man.

So Clay is now the top paid Linebacker in the league, topping Demarcus Ware's deal?

I guess its like paying for a really good 4-3 DE. Clay doesn't cover much, he goes after the QB.

Good deal for the Packers to sign him up long term. I enjoy watching Adrian run past him. Wink

(and with that long hair, sometimes I mistake him as a Cheerleader. lol)

I wrote this at the end of march so depending on the guaranteed money I was pretty close. Good move by Green Bay

Demarcus Ware signed an extension a few years ago that averaged just over 11 million per year with 20 million bonus and Mario Williams signed last year for 16 million per year with 19 million bonus. I would say Clay gets about 13 million per year with at least 20 million bonus

70 million over the next 6 years is good news for the Packers.

Really glad we got to work off Ware's multi year old contract now instead of the ones Von Miller and Aldon Smith will be getting.
