-- A Jordy Nelson reunion? Don't rule it out.
According to the former Green Bay Packers wide receiver, it'd be hard to turn down his good friend and former quarterback who he spent 10 seasons catching passes from.
"[If Aaron Rodgers called] it would probably be hard to say no." - Jordy Nelson talking about returning on @dpshow
— Andrew Perloff (@andrewperloff) April 3, 2019
Nelson appeared on the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, confirming that he was working on a one-day contract to officially retire with the team.
Nelson's 10 seasons with the Packers saw him accumulate 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns, which ranks as the second-most in team history behind only Don Hutson. He and Aaron Rodgers also connected for more touchdowns than any other quarterback-receiver tandem in Green Bay.
That connection and familiarity could be one of the reasons the Packers even consider bringing Nelson in to play meaningful snaps. Very few duos in recent memory established the same foundation on the field that Rodgers and Nelson did, and even fewer were able to produce at the rate in which they did on the grounds of that foundation.
Either that or the Packers endure an unfortunate injury to one of their top receivers and reach out to Nelson. It would replicate what they did with James Jones in 2015 after Nelson tore his ACL in the team's second preseason game.
The Packers have Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison and Jake Kumerow as a trio of veteran pass-catchers, as well as second-year receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown and J'Mon Moore. Such a group wouldn't necessarily be able to afford to a detrimental injury, but there's the belief the Packers will add another receiver via the draft later this month.
Nelson spent one season with the Oakland Raiders and matched his target total (88) from his final season with the Packers, but had 10 more catches and nearly 300 more yards. Granted, Nelson's final season with the Packers was spent majorly with Brett Hundley at quarterback.
With Rodgers for the entirety of the first five games of the 2017 regular season, Nelson led the league in receiving touchdowns, continuing his trend from the season prior.
