LB Chillar agrees to 4-year deal with Packers
The Green Bay Packers have agreed to a four-year, $21 million deal with linebacker Brandon Chillar.
Chillar's agent, James Ivler, said Monday that the player will receive $9.5 million through the end of next season under the new contract. The deal was first reported by espn.com.
Chillar has been a key role player for first-year Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, occasionally playing a hybrid linebacker-safety position. Chillar broke his right hand in the Packers' Nov. 1 loss to Minnesota but is beginning to get back into the team's defensive rotation.
