Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski aren't the only dynamic duo with aspirations to play together again, or at least that's what Aaron Rodgers' Twitter activity might suggest.

Jordy Nelson, formerly a top target of Rodgers in Green Bay, retired after the 2018 season, signing a one-day contract with the Packers.

Inspired by Brady and Gronk, Rodgers sent a subliminal message to his former target, who remains just 34 years old. Does he have one more run in him?

Nelson and Rodgers won a Super Bowl together in 2011. From 2013-16, Nelson topped the 1,200-yard plateau for three straight seasons and made the Pro Bowl in his finest campaign to date in '14, with 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Towards the end of his career, Nelson left Green Bay in 2018 and joined the Oakland Raiders, putting up respectable numbers (739 yards and three scores) in one season. While he wouldn't be the Nelson of old at this juncture, he'd be a productive slot guy in a Packers offense that's lacking consistent receivers behind Davante Adams.

Jordy is a fan favorite in Green Bay, and there's no telling how much pull Rodgers has with his former teammate. But if there's any truth to something as simple as a Twitter like, No. 12 might already be putting out some feelers.
