St. Xavier product and Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly has signed a five-year extension worth $62 million, according to NFL.com’s Rand Getlin.

Kuechly’s deal makes him the highest paid inside linebacker in the league. Kuechly was the NFL defensive player of the year in 2013 and was a first-team All-Pro linebacker in back-to-back seasons. In the first three years of his career, Kuechly has started in every single game for the Panthers.

Kuechly’s reported deal comes on a day with a flurry of new contracts around the league. The Bengals also hope to sign A.J. Green before Sunday’s season opener in Oakland.
