Jordy got paid.

Do we know if the first year eclipses the current year?

That keeps him here until he is 33. Sounds good to me. FWIW, twitter has informed me that he had a really good day of practice today too.

I'm happy they got it done, but man only 14mil guaranteed? That's disrespect. He should've al least got more than [inappropriate/removed] Jennings.

Just from observing, Jordy seems like a different dude than a lot of guys league-wide. He probably could have squeezed more money out of a deal. I get the feeling (this is all speculation on my part) that he will take a bit less money to ensure his team has more. I think he will go back to kansas when he retires and his dollar there goes further than it would elsewhere. Why not make a bit less money in an environment you are comfortable in rather than chasing a nickel raise? He is still going to be rich.

this is kind of my feeling as well. if i were a player, i'd rather stay with an organization like the packers (the team that drafted me) and take a few less million than sign with some random team like the titans. i mean, really, what's a few million when you already have like $50 mil? even if the dude wants to retire to monaco, he'll still be more than fine.

Why do the Green Bay Aaron Rogers pay these players any money? They are no good, doesn't Ted listen to NFL gen on these matters.

In all cereal, it is good to have Welker 2.0 back.

I think I would actually pick the Titans if I could. Low cost of living in Tennessee, no income tax, and the seasons are pretty moderate.

My prediction for Jordy is: he finishes this contract, we let him walk, he signs for a couple seasons with kansas City to be closer to home for a season or two, I deny ever cheering for him, he retires and signs a 1 day contract to retire as a Packer.

Great re-signing for Green Bay. Jordy is one of the most underrated receivers in the NFL. Sad

i like the deal... its under 10 mill per year & when you factor in his 2014 pay its pretty much a 5 year 43.3 mill contract which equates a little over 8.5 per year

curious to see the breakdown, but its a fair deal for both sides imo... right in that 7.5-8.5mill range that I expected jordy to be valued at

great to have him back Smile
