Greg Jennings and James Jones have left the past two offseasons but Jordy Nelson probably isn't going anywhere. "I think it’ll be different," Nelson said. "I wouldn’t be surprised if stuff (negotiations) starts picking up soon now that the draft and everything’s done with."



“I don't have any regrets,” he said about that contract. “It's easy to say that now. I go out and blow out my knee halfway through the season, now I'm the smart one. Trust me. What I got in that last deal, I'll never spend it all, anyway, so I'm not worried about it."

This line made me laugh thinking about every NFL agent cringing as they read this.

The intelligent NFL players get it, hopefully the new guys watch and learn from Jordy.

Easy prediction, I think anyway, that Jordy will be signing an extension before the season starts.

Thank you for posting this and the quote. It reiterates what was said earlier about Jordy Nelson not being someone who goes for the big buck. Thus, will probably be resigned.

I'm wondering if he will give a LeRoy Butler type deal to the Packers... At least, I am sure that he wants to. What a truly great player to have on our team, and then Ted goes out and drafts two more....

They are like Stepford Jordys...

If Jordy signs a low offer, does Cobb's agent get pissed that Jordy's number sets the bar and wants nothing to do with us?

To me it is smart if Jordy is looking to create a legacy for himself post-football. Why not stay with the Packers, catch passes from one of the greatest of all time and retire a Packer which may open up future employment after he has retired?

I feel a lot better now going into the season. My thoughts were we needed to sign one of two and would love it if we got both. One looks willing to be reasonable with financial expectations and wants to get the deal done early. Makes for much less of a distraction.

I don't think Nelson will necessarily take a low offer I just don't think he's going to want some huge offer and feel disrespected if he doesn't get it like Jennings apparently was. I think GB will offer him a fair deal without overpaying like they do with most of their best players. It will probably be somewhere around 9-10m average. Maybe he'll surprise and go way under that but I don't see it.

I'd be curious whether we would offer a 9-10m deal (which is what the market seems to be after the Marshall signing) to a WR after our draft. Does the draft force Jordy to take a lower amount to stay? Obviously it would be better to keep a veteran, but if all 3 of our drafted WR show promise and Boykin continues to improve do we roll the dice with them should the $$$ not be within the range we would want to pay?

It's not just Jordy. Cobb and Boykin are all free agents in 10 months. This is a really tough cap situation for the Packers to be in with 3 unknowns just drafted who all might be significant contributors to the team. I'm assuming Cobb and Jordy combined will be in the 15-20 mil range and Jordy on the cusp of the downside of his career.

Boykin can still be RFA tendered though to like 1.5m for another year after this one so If Jordy gets a deal then Cobb is really the only question. Cobb hasn't to this oint really played up to a top level deal but there is a lot of hype there for him and he's super young so his contract could go either way.
