Morgan Burnett will remain with the Green Bay Packers, after signing a new four-year contract, nfl.com have reported.
The safety's new deal is worth $24.75m, which could rise to $26m with incentives, and it includes an $8.25m signing bonus.
The 24-year-old made 123 tackles last season, in a run of 32 consecutive games, and he has carried out his aim of coming to a long-term agreement with the Packers.
He has been with the Packers since signing in 2010 as a draft pick in the first year of his senior career.
The first of his three years with the team was curtailed by injury, as he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the October of that season, but he has started every game since 2011.
After re-signing linebackers Brad Jones and Clay Matthews in the spring, Burnett is another defence player that the Packers have managed to keep hold of, as they look to push on from reaching the Divisional playoffs last season.
