Jordy Nelson WR GB 17 Days

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers would like to sign contract-year WR Jordy Nelson to an extension "sooner rather than later."

Demovsky adds that the Packers want to extend Nelson before opening up talks with Randall Cobb. Nelson, 29, is due $2.55 million in the final year of his contract. He's been one of the top receivers in the league playing with Aaron Rodgers the last three seasons and could command $10 million annually. Green Bay has $13.64 million in 2014 cap space. There's more than enough room for the sides to get a long-term deal done prior to training camp.

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.

Green Bay and Jordy Nelson have had conversations about a contract extension, but there is no timetable to get a deal done.

Nelson is entering the final year of a $13.9 million, four-year extension he signed in the middle of the 2011 season. That deal proved to be a massive bargain for the Packers. Nelson has posted two 1,200-yard seasons and scored 30 touchdowns over the last three seasons. Nelson is one of the top wide receivers in the game, and he should command near $10 million annually.

Jordy Nelson caught seven balls for 62 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Wild Card loss to San Francisco.

Green Bay's offense looked dead in the water before parlaying a second-quarter Tramon Williams interception into Jordy's five-yard touchdown, giving the Packers a 7-6 lead. Nelson made the diving catch in 49ers top corner Tramaine Brock's coverage. Nelson worked both outside and in the slot, the latter area in which he played more than ever this season. With increasing versatility and an already highly polished all-around game, 28-year-old Nelson has earned WR1 recognition in fantasy leagues. He'll enter a contract year in 2014.

Jordy Nelson caught three passes for 46 yards in Week 16 against Pittsburgh.

Nelson was targeted just five times on the day. James Jones and Jarret Boykin combined to see 25 passes come their way. Nelson could have had a touchdown on the final play of the fourth quarter, but Matt Flynn didn't see him open in the end zone and decided to throw to Boykin instead. Nelson has been more WR2 than WR1 with Aaron Rodgers sidelined. He gets the Bears in Week 17.

Jordy Nelson caught five passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

Nelson flashed strong hands all afternoon, but never more so than on his 13-yard touchdown, where he straight up stole the ball away from Cowboys slot CB Orlando Scandrick. It set the tone for Green Bay's wild second-half comeback from a 26-3 halftime deficit. With the Packers still somehow alive in the NFC North, Aaron Rodgers might finally be cleared to make his long-awaited return in Week 16. That would immediately send Nelson back to the WR1 ranks.
