At 32-years old, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson is showing no signs of slowing down. After missing the entire 2015 season due to a torn ACL, Nelson returned to form last year. He recorded 97 receptions for 1,257 yards to go with an NFL-high 14 touchdowns.
Despite his somewhat advanced age, Nelson doesn’t plan on calling it quits anytime soon.
“I got two more years left on this deal, it would be great to play those out and kind of see where we’re at,” Nelson said on A.J. Hawk’s podcast. “would say anywhere between two to four more years. I think four more – so this one and three more – would be my max.”
This has to be music to the ears of Aaron Rodgers. The two have built a strong chemistry since Rodgers took over as Green Bay’s starter for Brett Favre back in 2008. Coincidentally, that was also Nelson’s rookie season.
During that very same span, Nelson has caught 497 balls for 7,366 yards and 63 touchdowns. That ranks him in the top five in all three categories in Packers history.
