Burnett will likely receive a 4-year extension in the neighborhood of $32 million
The Green Bay Packers are reportedly working on a contract extension with safety Morgan Burnett. Burnett’s contract is currently set to expire following the 2013 season and after extending the contracts of Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews during the offseason, the Packers have tabbed Burnett as their next priority.
Burnett led the team in tackles last season with 123 and continues to make progress in the Packers’ defense. After losing most of his rookie season to a knee injury, Burnett has been one of the most consistent members of the secondary.
With veteran Charles Woodson departing via free agency and some questions lingering about the other starting safety spot, the Packers saw the need to get Burnett locked up sooner than later. Heading into training camp, Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings will be competing for the slot opposite Burnett.
The deal is estimated to be somewhere between $30...

The post Packers reportedly working on a new deal for Morgan Burnett appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
TMZ was trying to catch up with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers while he was out on the town. Unfortunately for them he didn’t have much to say.
The one thing Rodgers did say to the reporter is, ”at some point you’re going to get a real job.”
While I respect and believe TMZ does a pretty good job with reporting news, to have a guy go out and ask Aaron Rodgers what...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Matthew Mulligan understands his role. Now with his fifth NFL team after signing with the Green Bay Packers this offseason, the 28-year-old tight end doesn't expect to make highlight-reel catches or have many Lambeau Leap-type moments.
Mulligan isn't bothered by a lack of recognition from casual football fans. He embraces it. As long as he's on the...
Green Bay Packers took care of LB Clay Matthews in the 2013 offseason as he became the highest paid linebacker in NFL history when the Packers and he made a deal worth $66 million over the next five seasons.
Matthews was drafted in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, with the 26th overall pick by the Packers and he has come as advertised.
However, with a ton of money comes...
If the Packers offense is going to click, there is one player who needs to perform at a high level in 2013.
That player is Jordy Nelson.
Nelson burst on the national scene during Super Bowl XLV, with his 9 catch, 140 yard performance, a major reason the Packers emerged victorious.
He followed that up with a career season in 2011.
68 receptions, 1,263 yards, and 15 touchdowns later...
This is the third installment of my “Five Players That Have to be Good” for the Green Bay Packers. My third choice is left tackle Bryan Bulaga.
On May 3, 2013 the news made its way through Packers media outlets that Head Coach Mike McCarthy was going to make sweeping changes on the offensive line. The unit that allowed MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to be sacked a league...

Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby has one of the strongest legs in the NFL. He was also one of the most accurate kickers. The key word: was. Last season was no doubt Crosby’s worst season as a pro. He had a career low 63.6 field goal percentage, which was second worst in the league. Aside from his field goal percentage, Crosby also...
Jermichael Finley, honestly, is one of my most hated players. It's weird too, because I'm a Packers fan.Well, it's not weird. The weird thing is, I'm about to tell you why you should put him on your fantasy team.Finley last year was 19th in fantasy points for tight ends. He's the 7th highest-paid tight end in the league. That's not good. He only had two touchdowns...

In case you were worried ESPN was going to suffer from a shortage of NFL analysts this fall, have no fear! Bristol has added yet another former player to their endless array of NFL analysts. This time, it's former Colts center Jeff Saturday, who I'm guessing will step right into Matt Light's shoes (Light left ESPN quietly in the last year) as Generic Offensive Lineman...
Anyone can make “bold” predictions about a team. I could tell you that the Chiefs will have a major turnaround, get into the playoffs as a wild card, and pound their way through the AFC to the Super Bowl. I could predict that the new schemes in Cleveland will make Trent Richardson a 2500 yard back and allow Brandon Weeden to complete 70% of his passes. It’s easy to throw out...
