Over the weekend wide receiver Jordy Nelson signed a one-day contract and retired as a Green Bay Packer. He was a beloved player and someone the fans didn't want to see go last year, but he decided to end his career and retire as a Packer after his one season with the Oakland Raiders. To further remember Nelson, who was at Packers camp on Tuesday, here are some career highlights that will give you all the feels.
Jordy was tremendous at creating space and getting separation. Even though he didn't look like a burner, he was sure-handed and had a knack for finding the end zone.
His best year came in 2014, his lone Pro Bowl season, where he hauled in 98 receptions for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns. He missed the entire 2015 season with a knee injury, but then he came back and had 97 receptions for 1,257 yards and league-leading 14 touchdowns.
Even though his career didn't last longer than expected, Jordy Nelson was a special player and created a lot of memories Packers fans will never forget.
