The Packers didn’t want to give guard Josh Sitton an extension, but they will be holding onto another member of their offensive line.
According to multiple reports, the Packers and left tackle David Bakhtiari have agreed on a four-year extension. Bakhtiari entered this season on the last year of his rookie contract.
Bakhtiari has started 46-of-48 regular season games since the Packers drafted him in the fourth round of the 2013 draft.
The deal is reportedly worth up to $51.67 million in total money and Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Bakhtiari has about $17 million fully guaranteed at signing.
With Bakhtiari signed and Sitton now a member of the Bears following his release, right guard T.J. Lang and center J.C. Tretter are the two members of Packers’ starting offensive line without deals beyond this season.
