GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers offensive lineman David Bakhtiari has agreed to a contract extension that will keep the Pro Bowl left tackle off the free-agent market in the offseason. Bakhtiari’s contract has been set to expire at the end of the 2020 season.

Bakhtiari’s agent, Mark Humenik, confirmed that his client had agreed to a four-year deal worth up to $105.5 million with a $30 million signing bonus. That makes Bakhtiari the highest paide offensive lineman in the NFL. The 29-year-old Bakhtiari has spent his entire career with the Packers after they selected him out of Colorado in the fourth round of the 2013 draft.
