Should the Packers Re-Sign Jordy Nelson?

This was going to be a very different video today about Eric Berry and Ha Ha going to the Bears, but after getting dozens of messages and comments, I figured this video had to be made.

Like I said in the description, this wasn't supposed to be today's video, but I got a ton of messages asking about getting Jordy back.

Gonna go to sleep now, as I have to get up for work in 4 hours. Hope you enjoy it, thank you for all the messages. I really appreciate you all.

Tomorrow will be about Eric Berry and Ha Ha.

We should so if he decides to retire after this year he can retire as a packer

Packers should trade a 7th and a bag of Doritos to the Giants for their entire team I think they would accept
Tom Adamo

Remember When James Jones came back from the raiders? Just sayin.
If they resign Jordy you will stop crying, right?
Jack Football
Jack Football:
Yes yes yes a thousand times yes. If we just gave him a one year deal to gauge what he’s capable of I think we could potentially resign him after this season. It brings a familiar face to the locker room and will obviously make Arron happy.

He’ll always be a packer in my heart.

Also I like how the photo is jordy as a packer and the raiders in the background

I’ve seen so many bad photoshops of Jordy in a Packers uniform today! Tom, do you think you could do a better job?

Dylan Keiner:
i think it would be pretty cool if we resign him, though it probably won't be the same.
I would love to just see him retire and we sign him as a WR coach for us

Keep making these sick packers vids
As a bears fan I think they should I mean Jordy and Rodgers have really good chemistry and always toasted us.

Jordy Nelson and marquise brown and davante Adams 🥳🥳
What would mike McCarthy even look like in a packer coach uniform? That sounds so darn silly!
Let Cobb and Matthews walk. Sign Nelson. Might be an unpopular opinion, but that's just my opinion.

No, use the money on another free agent o-lineman.

Joel Farley:
Yes yes yes but unfortunately my guess is he will go to the pats calling it right now ..... if he’s cheap enough why not right ?!
Great analysis, you have a new fan. Awesome video. You should get hired by ESPN or FS1, but then you would have to talk about other teams, and our Packers is all that really matters. Although you're right I still think they should give Jordy 1 more year, just to make Aaron happy. But what they really should do is try to draft DK Metcalf.

Jordy's production dropped because of who was throwing him the ball, yet he was able to do half of his average production with 12 throwing him the ball.
Jordy should have never not been in a Packers uniform.

Like a tsunami the comments came.
If only we had Jordy we could win a game.
Please sign him sexy LaFleur
I dont know what rhymes with LaFleur
If Jordy was cheap and was a rotational piece I’d be fine with it. When they won in 2010 Donald Driver was 35. But the packers need to add more depth to the line in the draft, along with a solid tight end like a Noah Fant. I still think the receivers will develop but it’s gonna take time. But lafleur will take the offense to the next level in my opinion and we added some depth to defense. It all depends on the draft now and a lot of this could be fixed with the draft.
I don't see Moore becoming much to be honest,id bump him for Nelson.

Tom Grossi the voice of reason! Thanks for the content... I couldn’t agree more on this point really. My dreams are for him to come back on a super cheap deal to retire a Packer but I will not fault Lafleur and company one bit if they pass. But but but...I miss him! It would be so amazing to see them spinning the ball in the end zone just one more time!

IMO we convince Jordy to retire and hire him as a WR consultant or some other position so that way he helps our young wr core while not sacrificing a roster spot
Jimmy Her
Jimmy Her:
I'm on the same boat, I LOVE Jordy Nelson as much as all of Packer nation, but signing him doesn't make sense. We're entering a new HC era, this is no longer Mike McCarthy so the system and calls are completely different. We need to draft a slot receiver, and hope that at least 1 of the 3 rookies we took last year takes a sophomore jump. If Jordy retires, let him sign a 1-day contract and have him retire a Packer.

Elizabeth Hunt
Elizabeth Hunt:
YES YES YES. I couldn't agree more. I've been trying to communicate all of these points and you just did it beautifully. Sharing and ordering a shirt.
We already did the hard part, parting ways.

If you bring him back you are stunting the rest of the guys on the roster. We want to have a shot at the Super Bowl for 4-5 years, and getting rid of guys with potential compared to Jordy for possibly 2 more seasons isn't the right move to make.

You'd have to cut at least 2 of Allison, Moore, MVS, EQSB, Davis, and Kumerow.

Sign him to retire as a packer. But I dont believe he is going to offer much in return at this point of his career and with the offense switching to a new system too. I could be wrong and he maybe can hit it off again with Rodgers but unless that can translate to a superbowl appearance, I'd rather Rodgers develop chemistry with the newer receivers. People who are screaming to get him back are looking at it through their nostalgia glasses.

1 day contract retire as a Packer. Love you Jordy.💚💛

Terrence Peters
Terrence Peters:
indeed, it would be so heart warming like wonderful to see Jordy back with the pack. But it was told like it is in this moment....that was then and this is now! To see Jordy retire as a Packer YES, but that's about it. Maybe a receivers coach someday? YES...I think he would be in line for that. Jordy always was one of my favorite players and always will be... I wish him the very best. where ever he lands with whom ever he plays? he will make an impact and can only make that team or organization a better one.

Wayne A. W.:
As much as dem Saints should resign The Real Jimmy G(raham) :-)
Sign Jordy on one year deal to play and show the new young WR core how to look create space AND look for the QB when the play is fails as Jordy would for Aaron.

Please, by all means....sign declining players. Bring back a guy that your QB will want to focus on. You'll be looking back at the 2018 season fondly.

The Aaron Rodgers + Jordy Nelson duo is legendary and plus now that Davante Adams is one of the best in the nfl we need another WR.

Rick Eisenberg
Rick Eisenberg:
Tom, your logic is tough to argue with. That being said, it is also irrefutable that last season's GB wide receiving corps suffered from lack of experience. So, in my opinion, if Jordy is willing to sign an affordable one-year contract, I believe he could give us the experience we need at wide receiver.
Thomas Dunbar
Thomas Dunbar:
But what about him helping develop those young receivers. I say we cut Davis and let Cobb walk

Daniel Seliger
Daniel Seliger:
The green and gold in me says yeah, but my brain says no. Overall I say no, especially after Aaron's collarbone injury. We must force Aaron to spread the ball around and not just have that security net all the time. Good analysis my man. Been argueing with doods all day. Let's save some of that money and roster spot for Eric Berry! Go Pack! GO!

Was not expecting a heart to heart, but I have the same outlook on the matter...... personally I really like jmon Moore and hope he can figure out how to catch a ball...idk why but I feel like all three of those rookies are gonna be great.

Tom - Do you have Red Zone Efficiency numbers for 2016 and 2018? Id be curious if GB was more effective in the RZ with Jordy.

Jordy would make more sense if they still had the same offense, but I don't know that he makes as much sense with a new offense coming on board.
Tom Adamo
Tom Adamo:
Derrick Carr hasn't been the same since he broke his leg. That's why Amari Cooper blew up after the cowboys trade.
Jordy Nelson is a Traditional player hes productive regardless if hes injured. Aaron Rodgers can get 3 more years out of Jordy. Come back home.

I have to disagree. Because I think he would be good for the young players. Him and Adams can help teach them and 12 has someone he loves to throw to for one more season

bytethabullet 7:
Honestly I do see the risk in it too. However, because of his leadership, mentoring and make plays abilities. He would lead by example! I do see how the reward could be worth more. The intangible value is another thing the packers could use going into the new season with all new coaching staff

Very Very good point on the College analogy... Devante was mediocre during his rookie season because he didn't know how to react to Rodger's scramble. We leaned on Jordy during Devante's development. Now that we have some really young WR's we have to wait for them to develop as well. I completely agree with you on it's a really big gamble that if Jordy comes back.
Jared Bickford
Jared Bickford:
Jordy and Arron can read each other's mind. Jordy has super high football IQ. Plus Jordy Catches balls rarely drops passes! Hire him! Don't take stats from Jordy catching passes from Derrick Carr and Brett Hundley!
Giovanni Ferrari
Giovanni Ferrari:
I can see both sides...first hes gettin up there in age...but if we do sign him he could b dbl teamed n have the other guys wide opened or vice versa
Juju Az
Juju Az:
The packers shouldn't do it
Like Jordy when he played here but it's time to move on. We already have several potentially good receivers that could have a break out season.
Do what Kuhn did is what I think jordy should do
Daniel Cha
Daniel Cha:
he had 700 yards last season, even he only gets 500 for every season i still want him back.
Kyle Duffield
Kyle Duffield:
How can you say no to Kumerow. The name practically beckons!
Jordy is good but he is the Bane to the Bears so don’t do it packers.
Jason Butler
Jason Butler:
This is the video Packers fans didn't know they needed! It's sad, but the league and this are different. If we look at the past more we can never move on to the potential we have!
Connor Field
Connor Field:
Ik that he is old and ik that we have young receivers. I feel that he could be a redzone threat. I feel we need someone else besides Adams and Graham
I think it would i mean not just for him to be a packer again but it might help the younger receivers like Allison,Scantling and St brown understand and learn a little more
I think signing Jordy will be great. Yes, a Young WR will be cut but Jmon Moore in my opinion has no good up side. Jordy will bring the Leadership to the locker room as well. I would only want to sign him for a very little deal if he does sign.

Im not Packers shouldnt bring back a 34 year old Jordy Nelson whos older and slower they in reload mode and it stunts growth of younger WRs Scatling and St. Brown who came on at end of season and with a year under belt will be even better next season
