Jordy Nelson WR GB 2 Months2 Comments

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.

Packers signed WR Jordy Nelson to a four-year, $39 million contract extension.

The deal includes $14.2 million guaranteed and an $11.5 million signing bonus. One of the most underrated wide receivers in the league, Nelson is finally getting paid after accepting a discounted rate from the Packers in 2011. The Packers will now turn their focus to Randall Cobb, who is also in the final year of his deal.

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.

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.

Nelson has posted two 1,000-yard seasons and scored 30 touchdowns the past three years. Expect him to command nears $10 million annually on a new deal. Nelson turns 29 in May.

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.
