UNDATED (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have locked up another defensive starter, signing safety Morgan Burnett to a long-term extension. Burnett’s extension, reported by NFL.com to be worth $24.75 million over four years, follows earlier offseason deals with linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones.

In three seasons with the Packers, Burnett has 244 tackles and six interceptions.

In other NFL news:

— The Washington Redskins are asking a judge to dismiss a former NFL player’s lawsuit that accuses the team and former assistant coach Gregg Williams of running a bounty program that encouraged players to intentionally injure opponents. The former player, linebacker Barrett Green, says he was targeted by the Redskins during a game on Dec. 5, 2004, resulting in a career-ending knee injury. The Redskins call Green’s case “utterly baseless.”
