The Green Bay Packers and safety Morgan Burnett have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth nearly $25 million, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported on Monday.

According to Rapoport, the deal includes $8.25 million in guaranteed money. The 24-year-old Burnett was entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Burnett, who was the Packers' third-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, had been in negotiations with the team for the past few weeks, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Burnett has been a starter for the Packers since his rookie season in 2010 — one that ended just four games into the season when he tore his ACL. He has been healthy for the past two seasons, starting all 16 games in each 2011 and 2012. Last season, he had a career-high 123 tackles, as well as two sacks and two interceptions.
