Report: Jordy Nelson Signs Contract Extension

October 2, 2011

I don’t know how he does it, but Ted Thompson has locked up another young, talented player for a seemingly team-friendly contract. This time, it’s wide receiver Jordy Nelson who signed on the dotted line.

ESPN’s John Clayton reports that Nelson signed a three-year, $13.35 million contract extension over the weekend that will keep him with the team through 2014. According to Clayton, the deal includes $5 million guaranteed and will pay Nelson around $4.8 million in each of the first two years.

The 2008 second-round pick celebrated his new deal with five catches for 91 yards and a touchdown during Sunday’s blowout victory over the Denver Broncos.

Nelson’s extension follows teammate’s Josh Sitton’s deal earlier this season and leaves the Packers with one more extension to toil over before season’s end: Tight end Jermichael Finley.
