Packers sign Kenny Clark to four-year, $70 million extension

Clark is signing a four-year extension for $70 million that includes a $25 million signing bonus with $37 million paid over the first two years, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Saturday morning. Instead, he'll collect a $25 million signing bonus along with his salary for this season.

The Packers' first-round pick in 2016, Clark overtook Mike Daniels as the team's dominant interior disrupter.

When her son could finally hold a pen without dropping it, he inked his name to a piece of paper that made him the highest-paid nose tackle in National Football League history and 12th highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

He has 16½ sacks over his four-year career.

Clark, who was set to become a free agent after the season, is set to stay in Green Bay through the 2024 season.

He recorded six sacks for the second straight season a year ago and also produced 89 tackles. Now that the Packers have reached a long-term deal with him, they can start making decisions on all the other notable players with contracts set to expire in 2021.
