GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – It’s hard to say goodbye, but with the signing of Aaron Jones earlier in the week, the writing was on the wall.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Los Angeles Chargers have signed former Packers center Corey Linsley to a five-year, 62.5 million dollar deal.

This makes Linsley the highest paid center in the league and he will get 26 million dollars over the first two years. Linsley was drafted by the Packers in 2014 out of Ohio State University. He played for the Green and Gold for 7 seasons and started in 99 games since entering the league in 2014.

Linsley remarked back in February it was not likely he would be back.
