GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – After a disappointing loss to the division rival Minnesota Vikings, Packers’ fans got some good news Monday morning as the team has signed star linebacker and edge rusher Rashan Gary to a new extension.
As first reported by Rashan Gary himself on X, formerly known as Twitter, Gary has inked a four-year, $107 million extension that will keep him in the Green and Gold through the 2027 season.
According to the NFL’s Ian Rapportport, the contract is a 4-year deal worth $107,532,706 overall with $96 million in new money and a signing bonus of $34,636,928.
Gary was drafted by the Green Bay Packers with the 12th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft and has quickly become one of the team’s top pass rushers as well as one the most disruptive players in the league.
“Rashan has been an impact player and person for us since he joined the Packers. His work ethic is unmatched and he has developed into a team leader and cornerstone of our team. We are very pleased that he will remain in Green Bay for years to come.”Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst
So far in 2023, after coming back from an ACL tear suffered in the middle of the 2022 season, Gary has 4.5 sacks, 5 tackles for a loss, 8 quarterback hits, and 1 pass deflected through 7 games.
