The agent for newly signed center Jeff Saturday confirmed that his deal with the Green Bay Packers is for two years.
Ralph Cindrich, who owns and operates the representation group Cindrich and Company, confirmed the length of his client's deal via Twitter.

Financial terms, including salary and guaranteed money, have yet be announced.
While only speculation at this point, it remains likely that the Packers paid somewhere in the range of $3-4.5 million a year with little financial risk past the first year. That kind of contract structure would allow the Packers to move on in 2013 if Saturday regresses and the team wants to move in a different direction.
As a backup option, expect the Packers to use a pick in April's draft on a center that can eventually be positioned to take over for Saturday.
