GREEN BAY — Paul Pabst of The Dan Patrick Show reported Wednesday, April 3 that Jordy Nelson reached out to the top executives with the Green Bay Packers to talk about signing a one-day contract and retiring as a Green Bay Packers player.

According to tweets posted on Wednesday morning, when Pabst asked Nelson if Aaron Rodgers called and asked him to come back to play for Green Bay, Nelson apparently said, “It probably would be hard to say no.”

“They didn’t show any interest at all after last year, after being released by Oakland, and so I don’t think that door was ever open again, but I have talked with Mark Murphy. He’s opened up the door to come back — do the one-day deal. We are still working on a time to get that done, and I can sign a contract and retire a Packer and end where we started,” said Nelson.
