The Green Bay Packers signed Pckett to a long-term contract extension Friday.||||||| Pickett was an unrestricted free agent, but the Packers placed the franchise tag on him earlier in the offseason. Pickett, who was signed as a free agent before the 2006 season, was a vital part of what was one of the league's best run defenses under new defensive coordinator Dom Capers and his 3-4 defensive alignment last season.

The Green Bay Packers have used their franchise tag on Pickett, keeping the hefty center of their 3-4 defense at a hefty sum.||||||| General manager Ted Thompson says in a statement Wednesday that the 340-pound Pickett has been a productive player and the team wants him to be a part of its future. Pickett will make just over $7 million next season if the sides don't reach a long-term agreement first. Pickett is a nine-year veteran who has spent the last four seasons in Green Bay. Last year, he totaled 47 tackles and played a key role on one of the NFL's best run defenses.

Pickett is being listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Colts.||||||| Pickett said he will likely play Sunday, even with a strained triceps muscle he suffered in the last game. "Big game like this, I can't see myself sitting out," Pickett said. Green Bay's big run stuffer practiced on a limited basis Friday after being held out the previous two days.

And with the temperature around 15 degrees and strong winds blowing through Soldier Field, the Packers went with Justin Harrell instead.
