Packers’ Rodgers ‘wants to go to the Super Bowl’
Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson wants to go “to the Superbowl” and he’s not the only one.
Nelson told Aaron Wilson of The MMQB that the Packers’ top free-agent receiver wants to be an “every-down” receiver and is not afraid to play the game himself.
The Packers signed Nelson to a four-year, $32 million contract extension this offseason and he is expected to earn $10 million per season.
Nelson, who played in only two games last season due to injury, will compete with rookie Golden Tate for a roster spot in 2017.
He will likely earn at least $1 million per game in his first season with the Packers.
The 29-year-old also told Wilson that he wants to compete for the No. 1 receiver job in 2017 and “be a guy who can go deep.”
Nelson is expected back for a major role this season after he missed all but six games last year with injury.
