Report: Morgan Burnett extended
More From ESPN.com
The Packers clearly valued stability and reliability in extending safety Morgan Burnett's contract, writes Kevin Seifert. Blog
The safety will make $15 million in the first two years, the website reports, and the contract can be worth up to $26 million over the duration with incentives.
After recovering from a torn ACL that ended his rookie season in 2010, Burnett rarely has missed a snap. He has started 32 consecutive regular-season games, missing 16 plays in 2011 while dealing with a broken hand and becoming one of four non-offensive linemen in the NFL to play all of his team's snaps in 2012.
All told, Burnett has been on the field for 2,169 of the Packers' 2,185 defensive snaps (99.3 percent) since the start of the 2011 season.
Burnett, 24, had 123 tackles and two interceptions during the 2012 season.
