Seeing as both JJ and Jordy are going to be free agents soon, I was thinking that we'll likely lose at least one of them. They'll both be around 30 by the time they hit free agency, and I doubt we'll be able to afford both of them. Who do you guys think is more likely to stay in GB? I think Jones is much more likely because although he led the league in TD's this past year, he isn't nearly as a big a name as Jordy. What do you all think?

Jordy. Jones is more of a possession WR, while Jordy has the potential to be a #1 WR, even if he's now hamstrung

Will both of them become FAs the same year? If not I wonder if TT will try to extend them both one at a time...? Think

Nah, just Jones. Jordy has another year IIRC

Yeah, Jordy has more potential, but he's a bigger name and will be more expensive. I don't know if we can assume he'll stay here.

It's not just potential. Nelson's mold tends to have a longer career than Jones'.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but because of their contract situations as OP said, I would not be surprised to see WR very high this year. (Then again, wouldn't be surprised to see it not addressed till late either, cause its TT but moreso than if we went that way early.)

Clearly unaware that White got the largest contract for a defensive player in NFL history.

After this season: James Jones and Jermichael Finley
After next season: Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb

All 4 are FA within the next 2 years. I can't see any other way around it than to invest heavily in passcatchers this year to get them ready. I'm going to guess that we end up keeping 2 and losing 2. I wouldn't be surprised to see both Jones and Finley walk next offseason.

I'd bet on Nelson. He has the better skillset more consistent production, and the price between the two of them isn't going to be that huge of a difference. Last time around, the Packers were willing to let Jones test the market in FA, but Nelson they locked up pretty early with an extension. That's pretty telling.

I don't see anything getting decided until at least mid way through the season. In the end I believe all of Jordy's, James' and Jermichael's futures are up in the air right now.

I could see any or all walking to be honest but not all staying.

While unavoidable and absolutely necessary, the Rodgers, Matthews contracts are really going to put a damper on handing out 6 million dollar extensions. Imagine if we still had Collins contract on the books. Off the top of my head, Pickett may be the only expiring large contract in the near future . I would add Hawk to that list but we may be stuck with him. With a plateau in the cap, I see tough days ahead

No way Nelson's game translates into his thirties like Jones' will.

How many possession receivers over 30 see much if any success? Nelson my end up having to change his game, but I'm convinced he'll have the longer career.

There's no way the packers are letting either guy go. Also, jones is considerably better than Nelson.



All Nelson ever does is get injured, and fail to produce if two other wr studs aren't on the field.

uhhh why?

I'd be shocked if both are back. It's quite unlikely.

I think we may already have Jones' replacement in Jarrett Boykin. I'm interested to see his development this preseason. If he picks it up that can be his role, and for a much friendlier cap hit.
