Packers, veteran LB Chillar agree on four-year, $21M contract

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers have agreed to a four-year, $21 million contract with linebacker Brandon Chillar.

Chillar's agent, James Ivler, said Monday that his client will receive $9.5 million through the end of next season under the new contract. The deal was first reported by ESPN.com.

Chillar has been a key role player for first-year Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, occasionally playing a hybrid linebacker-safety position. Chillar broke his right hand in the Packers' Nov. 1 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but he's beginning to get back into the team's defensive rotation.
