The NFC champions have added to their defense.
The Rams have agreed to a two-year deal, worth as much as $16.75 million, with former Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, according to a report from NFL Network.
Two-year deal for LB Clay Matthews with the #Rams worth a max of $16.75 million, source says. He had more lucrative offers on the table but he just welcomed his third child and really wanted to play close to home. Plus, a shot at another ring doesn’t hurt.
