The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported today that starting CB Tramon Williams has received a four-year contract extension averaging $8.25 million per year. The deal, which was actually completed late last week, is worth $41.25 million and extends Williams' contract through 2014.

Williams, who many believe has played at a Pro Bowl level this season, reportedly received a $6 million signing bonus and roster bonuses of $2.5 million in 2011, $2.8 million in 2012 and $300,000 in both 2013 and 2014. The 27-year-old Williams, who originally entered the league as a free agent with Houston in 2006, becomes the Packers’ fourth-highest-paid player in average salary behind QB Aaron Rodgers, CB Charles Woodson and WR Greg Jennings.

The way we see it

This is a move that had been expected for weeks, with Williams very deservedly moving into the team’s high-rent district along with Rodgers, Jennings and Woodson, whom he has outperformed much of the season. Packers GM Ted Thompson remained true to form, opting to re-up with a core player rather than allowing him to test the free-agent market.
