Doug Baldwin has been one of the most valuable players per target over the last 25 years

Dating back to 1992, only three players have caught at least 65% of their targets (minimum 400 targets) with at least nine yards per target. One of them is Jordy Nelson, who has an NFL-best 10.25 Y/T in that time frame with an exceptional 67.1% catch rate. Playing for Aaron Rodgers, the oft-undisputed best QB in the NFL, Nelson averaged 1,210 yards and 11 touchdowns per season from 2011 to 2014 and the fact that he has only ever made the Pro Bowl once just goes to show how stacked that position is right now. Yet, Nelson has managed to basically make his average every time he's targeted a...

Jordy Nelson’s contract has never been a bigger bargain

The deal the Packers struck with Jordy Nelson in 2014 looked like a bargain at the time. Now, after new extensions for Doug Baldwin and Keenan Allen, it looks like a steal. In the pantheon of roster moves made by Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson, the selection of Aaron Rodgers in 2005 indisputably towers over everything else. The debate regarding Thompson’s second-best decision creates considerably more intrigue, as additions such as Charles Woodson in 2006 and Clay Matthews in 2009 would rank highly on any GM’s résumé. Now, the time has come to add “signed Jordy...

James Jones wants to keep playing, despite surprise that Packers did not re-sign him

In an interview with a Green Bay newspaper, the former Packer discusses his free agency and hopes to return to his old team once again. It seems that every time James Jones is a team leader, he gets let go. In the wake of Jordy Nelson’s ACL tear last year, the former Green Bay Packers draft pick returned to the place where his NFL career started. Jones ended up leading the Packers in receiving yards with 890, and set a career-high in yards per reception with 17.9. However, Jones appears to be forced to look for a job outside of Green Bay once again this season, and the receiver keeps...

Rosters announced for Jordy Nelson’s Charity Softball Game

There will be plenty of star power featured on the diamond this Sunday. One of the highlights of the Green Bay Packers' offseason in recent years has been the softball game put on by the team’s star wide receivers - first Donald Driver and then Jordy Nelson. This week, the rosters were finally announced for the game, and both the offense and defense teams have plenty of star power in the dugout. Leading the way for the offense will be Nelson (of course), as well as Aaron Rodgers, Josh Sitton, and Randall Cobb. The defensive squad will feature stars Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, and Mike...

Jordy Nelson expects to play in charity Softball game on Sunday

There's good news for fans hoping to see the Packers' wideout taking a different kind of playing field this weekend. Every year, the Green Bay Packers' charity softball game is a highlight of the team's offseason. It has survived the retirement of its original namesake, Donald Driver, and now lives on with Jordy Nelson lending his name, image, and personality to the contest. However, with Nelson still working back slowly from the torn ACL he suffered last preseason and being on a schedule to wait to return fully until training camp, it would be reasonable for a fan to think that he might...

Jordy Nelson runs routes for Aaron Rodgers in practice, could play in a game now

Green Bay's top receiver isn't participating in team drills until July, but he says he could if necessary. The Green Bay Packers' offense struggled without the services of wide receiver Jordy Nelson in 2015. The inability of the receivers to get separation and threaten the deep middle of the field has been well-documented, and Aaron Rodgers' lack of chemistry with several of his young receivers also appears to have hurt the team's production. Fans hoping for a bounce-back performance from both Nelson and the offense as a whole should be encouraged by the news out of Packers OTAs on...
