The 2014 Pro Bowler and 2016 National Football League leader in receiving touchdowns developed an uncanny rapport with Aaron Rodgers, who never shied away from throwing Nelson open on the boundaries with their patented back-shoulder telepathy. The announcement came minutes after news broke that the team plans to sign tight end Jimmy Graham.

In Nelson's ten-season career with Green Bay, he caught 550 passes for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns. Nelson was selected to the Pro Bowl and named second-team All-Pro by The Associated Press for his performance during the 2014 season in which he set career highs in receptions (98) and receiving yards (franchise-record 1,519) while also hauling in 13 touchdowns.
