Packers fans know Jordy Nelson is great to have out on the field, but he is also great to have out in the field…on his family farm. The $40 million dollar Packers receiver apparently still spends up to 12 hours a day working on his family farm in the offseason. Does this surprise us? As a die-never Packers fan, I say “Not at all”.
One of the things I love about our Packers receiver corps is that though they are the best in the business, they are still just hard working guys who always strive for improvement. Jordy (and now Randall Cobb) have embodied this and been rewarded with big contracts with the Packers. The attitude trickles down and the Packers are fortunate to have a great “family tree” of excellent, elite, yet hard-working receivers for Aaron Rodgers to throw to.
I can’t wait to see Jordy in action again and I’m glad to know that the “hay is in the barn” too! Here’s to you Jordy! Best wishes for a healthy season and another Pro Bowl year. And let’s add another ring this year, whaddaya say?
Feel free to give your best wishes to Jordy for the upcoming season in the comments below or back on the Facebook Fanpage!
