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.

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.
