Jordy Nelson's four-year, $39 million extension is really only a two-year commitment by the Packers.
Nelson is safe through 2015 due to the proration of his $11.5 million signing bonus, but that is the only guaranteed portion of the deal. Nelson's salary cap number jumps from $4.6 million in 2015 to $8.8 million in 2016, at which point he will be entering his age-31 season with a non-guaranteed salary of $5.5 million. Because Nelson was already under contract with the Packers for 2014, the overall max value of the deal is $43 million across five seasons.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports walk-year WR Jordy Nelson is seeking "at least" $10 million per season in long-term talks.
Nelson has no intention of handing out another discount. Nelson has been one of the league's most underpaid players since signing his four-year, $13.989 million deal in the fall of 2011. The $10 million demand shouldn't surprise the Packers, who have roughly $13 million in cap space. A deal could be worked out before Week 1.

Walk-year WR Jordy Nelson was evasive when asked about his contract situation on Tuesday.
"Obviously, you want to get it done as soon as possible," Nelson said. "But there are a lot of other people that are involved in that. It's a process and we'll just have to wait and see how it goes." Nelson agreed to below-market value when he signed his last deal in October 2011, but that won't be the case this time around. Now 29, this figures to be Nelson's last shot at a big-time payday.
