Jordy Nelson Planning To Sign One-Day Contract To Retire With Packers

Veteran WR Jordy Nelson said in an interview with Melissa Brunner of WIBW that he plans to sign a one-day contract with the Packers at some point in August to retire as a member of the team. 

Nelson just announced his retirement from the NFL back in March, despite drawing some interest as a free agent.

Nelson visited with the Seahawks after becoming a free agent and reportedly had interest from four other teams, but ultimately elected to call it a career. 

Nelson, 33, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2008. He was entering the final year of his five-year, $43 million contract when the Packers released him last year. 

The Raiders later signed Nelson to a two-year, $15 million contract, but was released in March. 

For his career, Nelson played 10 seasons for the Packers and Raiders and caught 613 passes for 8,587 yards receiving and 72 touchdowns over the course of 151 games played. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2014 and was named Comeback Player of the Year in 2016.
