Rashan Gary will continue to be the nightmare of opposing quarterbacks visiting Green Bay for seasons to come.
The Packers pass rusher has agreed to terms on a four-year, $96 million contract extension, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday, per a source.
The $96 million extension is in new money, bringing Gary's contract to a total of $107,532,706, including a $34,636,928 signing bonus, per Rapoport.
The team has since announced Gary's extension.
"Rashan has been an impact player and person for us since he joined the Packers," said Packers general manger Brian Gutekunst, via the team's official website. "His work ethic is unmatched and he has developed into a team leader and cornerstone of our team. We are very pleased that he will remain in Green Bay for years to come."
A first-round pick by the Packers in 2019, Gary had been playing in the final year of his rookie contract in 2023. The extension is a testament to the 25-year-old's work ethic after he suffered a torn ACL last season.
Gary illustrated his return to health with a three-sack game over the Saints in Week 3, a performance that was instrumental in Green Bay's comeback win. He's collected 4.5 sacks, five tackles for loss and eight QB hits in seven games this season.
Green Bay went ahead and locked up an essential pillar of the defense for years to come, and Gary's play-wrecking abilities allow teammates to thrive.
Packers linebackers De'Vondre Campbell and Preston Smith have enjoyed a career renaissances upon Gary's arrival, and Jaire Alexander, Rasul Douglas, Eric Stokes and Darnell Savage are part of a talented secondary that benefits from the Michigan product wreaking havoc. Lukas Van Ness, a first-round pass rusher selected in 2023, will also get to learn from Gary in the years to come.
In 63 career games, Gary has produced 27.0 sacks, 62 QB hits, three forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
