Report: Packers' Jordy Nelson wants at least $10 million per season
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who is entering the final year of a contract extension he signed in September 2011, wants to earn at least $10 million per season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Nelson's current contract averages $4.2 million per season, which ranks him 34th among NFL receivers. Nelson is set to make $3.05 million in base salary in 2014.
Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White signed a reported four-year, $30 million deal on Thursday, which is less per season than the extension that Nelson appears to be seeking. Since Nelson signed his extension in 2011, he has 202 catches for 3,322 yards and 30 touchdowns. In the same timeframe, White has 255 catches for 3,358 yards and 18 touchdowns.
Another Packers wide receiver, Randall Cobb, is also entering the final year of his contract.
Demovsky reports that the Packers have $13,669,119 in salary cap space.
