GREEN BAY, WI (WTVO/WQRF) — The Packers were able to keep running back Aaron Jones from hitting the NFL’s free agent market, but they couldn’t do the same with center Corey Linsley.

According to numerous reports Linsley has agree to a five-year $62.5 million deal with the Chargers that makes him the highest paid center in the NFL. He is expected to earn $17 million this coming season. NFL free agent deals can’t officially be announced until Wednesday afternoon, but teams are allowed to make offers to free agent and reach agreements.

Linsley was a first team All-Pro center last season. He spent the last seven seasons in Green Bay. He started 99 games.
