LOS ANGELES (AP) Linebacker Clay Matthews agreed to a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday, returning to his native Southern California after a decade with the Green Bay Packers.

The 32-year-old Matthews set the Packers franchise record with 83+ sacks over his 10 seasons in Green Bay. The former USC star earned six Pro Bowl selections and won a Super Bowl ring with the Packers, although his 3+ sacks last season were a career low.

Matthews went to high school in Agoura Hills, California, and he lives in nearby Calabasas with his wife and growing family. Both towns are a short drive from the Rams' training complex in Thousand Oaks northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
