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 [...]

However, as the title has mentioned I personally don’t feel that the contract signed by Matthews is worth it. Furthermore, I’m a little surprised that so many Packers fans are okay with the deal.

What Packers fans should be doing is jumping up and down with joy.

For all intents and purposes, the Packers just got away with “grand theft Matthews”. While initially it looks like Matthews was rewarded handsomely for his services and now can claim to be the highest paid linebacker in NFL history, if you dive deeper into the structure of the deal, it’s pretty obvious that general manager Ted Thompson and lead contract negotiator Russ Ball really got the better end of the bargain.



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.

uffda udfa (7h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
