Over the past two or three weeks we’ve been seeing and hearing reports from folks across the NFL spectrum that both Green Bay Packers stars Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers have been on the cusp of signing new long-term contracts that will keep them in Green and Gold for many years to come.
And today, in fact just minutes ago, the fan Twitter account, @ClayMatthewsNews, tweeted this:
Matthews appears to be getting close to signing a new contract with the Packers.

A quick search of reliable sources reveals nothing.
Which brings us to the point about accurate and timely news that will stand the test of time.
The experts who cover the NFL have the accuracy and timeliness that we can depend on. Let’s allow them to do the job. When we see tweets like this, you know there are going to be peeps out there who are going to believe it … like when the “news” story about Clay Matthews breaking both his legs steamrolled across the Internet … yes, it WAS fake.
So in the meantime, we sit and wait and wonder – Just WHEN will Matthews and Rodgers sign? I guess they will sign when they are ready to sign.
When they do, believe me the guys over at NFL.com, ESPN, CBS, FOX and every other news outlet will be on it. When it happens, we here at Lombardiave.com will also be putting in our two cents.
But we’ll wait for the real news before hyping a tweet.
