Last week Clay Matthews III signed a new 5-year extension with the Packers that made him the highest paid linebacker in the history of the NFL.  The press release announced that Matthews was awarded a $66 million extension that averages $13.2 million yearly, which just barely eclipses Dallas Cowboy outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware’s 2009 extension [...]

An intention misleading title... sort of an attention getting type.

My jumping down with joy is tempered only by the prospect of nagging injuries - specifically his hamstring. That can keep coming back. When he's in the lineup healthy, he deserves the big money.
