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 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.

"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.
