Report: Chillar re-signs with Packers

From Adam Schefter of

When he was a free agent, linebacker Brandon Chillar had to be talked into going to Green Bay. Now he doesn't want to leave.

With his contract set to expire after this season, Chillar signed a four-year, $21 million contract extension with the Packers that includes $7 million in guaranteed money, according to a close to the situation.

Chillar's deal is rare in that, these days, teams have proceeded cautiously in terms of signing players to long-term contracts with the league's uncertain financial future ahead.
