One of the Green Bay Packers' young starting offensive linemen is planning on staying with the team for at least four more years.'s Ian Rapoport reports that the Packers and David Bakhtiari have agreed to terms on a four-year contract that could bring him as much as $51.67 million.

This is Bakhtiari's fourth season with the Packers. He has anchored the left side of the offensive line as Rodgers' main blind-side protector.

The move comes 10 days after the Packers cut another veteran lineman, Josh Sitton, amidst reported controversy over his presence in the locker room.
