Former Ohio State center Corey Linsley will hike the ball to Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay for the foreseeable future as the franchise inked the Youngstown native to a contract extension Saturday morning.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the deal is for three years and $25.5 million.

Linsley, who almost walked away from football after the hiring of Urban Meyer, was drafted in the fifth round of the 2014 draft. He promptly supplanted longtime center J.C. Tretter, who now plays for the Cleveland Browns.

From The Green Bay Packers:

Linsley, who was drafted out of Ohio State as the first of two choices in the fifth round (161st overall) by the Packers in 2014, has started all 53 regular-season games he has played in over four years, including being the only Green Bay offensive lineman to start every game this season. He has also started all seven of the Packers postseason contests since 2014. 

Sounds like a good investment.
