GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Jordy Nelson says he's working on a deal to retire as a member of the Green Bay Packers.
Nelson says he's talked to Packers President Mark Murphy about signing a 1-day deal so he can end where he started. Nelson was drafted by the Packers in 2008 and played last season with the Oakland Raiders. He announced his retirement last week.
Speaking on "The Dan Patrick Show" Wednesday, Nelson says the Packers didn't show any interest after the Raiders released him. He says the Seattle Seahawks and the Raiders, at a reduced price, showed interest, but he and his family decided to return to Kansas.
Nelson admits it would be hard to say no if Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers called asking him to return to Green Bay.
