On Sunday we discussed how Ted Thompson was not talking about a new contract with Packers tight end Jermichael Finley. Perhaps that's because he was too busy working out a deal with wideout Jordy Nelson?

The Packers wide receiver, in the final year of his current contract, signed a three-year, $13.5 million extension, according to ESPN.

Nelson, who caught five balls for 91 yards and a touchdown on Sunday in Green Bay's blowout win over Denver, has become an integral part of the Packers passing attack over the last year and change.

In 2010, he posted a career high 582 yards and 45 catches in 16 games, four of which were starts. He's on pace to shatter those numbers in 2011, having accumulated 201 catches and two touchdowns (tied for his career high) in 2011 already.

Nelson's the second free agent to receive a deal since the season began -- guard Josh Sitton also received a contract from the Packers that extended him through 2016.

All that's left now for Thompson in terms of locking up the core is lineman Scott Wells and Finley. Depending on how the season goes, we might not have seen the last of Green Bay contracts.

yeah, i'd say he deserves a bit more than 13.5M for 201 receptions in 4 games.

I agree Knicks Fan... He is truly showing that he should be considered every bit as dangerous as Jennings.  Perhaps even more due to Red Zone prowess.  

As for your comment sdmmia... No clue what the comment means.  Aaron Rodgers is great, yes.  But certainly that WR Corp plays just as much a role in his greatness as he does in theirs.  Not recognizing that is an admission of a lack of football knowledge.

Jordy Nelson is quietly becoming one of the best WR in the league....he is an elite route runner, makes great catches, and finally has become consistent with his catching

Ha!  201 receptions for the season would be an NFL record.  Looks like it's 15 receptions, 292 yards and 3 TD's after 4 games.  It was 10 receptions, 201 yards and 2 TD's after 3 games.
