One down, one to go. The Green Bay Packers locked up one of their key players long term, as middle linebacker Clay Matthews signed a five-year contract extension that will reportedly pay him more than $13 million annually. Matthews' new deal includes $31 million of guaranteed money and keeps the four-time Pro Bowler in Green Bay for his prime years. With Matthews' contract situation cleared up, the Packers can now focus on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who's also looking for a big money deal. If Matthews is worth $13 million a year, how much is the former NFL MVP worth?
