Report: Contract Talks Between The Packers & WR Jordy Nelson Are “Ongoing”

Update:

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that conversations between the Packers and WR Jordy Nelson are “ongoing,” although there is currently no timetable for an extension to get done.

  • Caplan adds that Green Bay is expected to continue to work on addressing their unrestricted free agents before turning their attention veteran players currently under contract.

Ian Rapoport reports that the Packers view a contract extension for WR Jordy Nelson as an important offseason priority.

Green Bay has benefited from one of the most team-favorable contracts in the league for a few years now.

Nelson, 29 in May, signed a four-year contract worth $13.9 million that included just $5 million guaranteed with the Packers back in 2011. Nelson is set to make just $2.55 million this year, so he’s clearly earned a sizable raise based on his play in the past few years.

Nelson’s three-year average stats include 67 receptions for 1,107 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns and that’s despite being four games due to injury and playing a seven-game stretch with guys like Seneca WallaceScott Tolzien and Matt Flynn throwing him the ball.

Nelson could end up being paid as a top-five receiver, and possibly come close to the contract signed by Vincent Jackson who received a five-year deal worth $55 million that included $26 million guaranteed.

Randall Cobb is also eligible for a contract extension, so that could be a situation to watch as well.
