Clay Matthews signs with Rams


After a decade in Green Bay, Matthews is signing with the Los Angeles Rams, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Matthews confirmed the move with a post on Twitter shortly after the official announcement.

Matthews went to high school in Agoura Hills, California, and he lives in nearby Calabasas with his wife and growing family. During his time as a Packer, he made six Pro Bowls, All-Pro once, and was a key cog on the Super Bowl XLV winning team. The former Packers grew up 15 minutes from the Rams practice facility in Thousand Oaks, California.

Matthews will contribute to the Rams' pass rush alongside All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald and linebacker Dante Fowler, who re-signed with the NFC champions earlier this month.

Clay Matthews is leaving Green Bay for a good chunk of money and the opportunity to play for the Rams in Los Angeles, near his hometown and where he now lives in the offseason.

Clay Matthew III will not be playing in a Green Bay Packers uniform in 2019.
