Source: Packers, WR Nelson agree to three-year contract extension

The Packers and wide receiver Jordy Nelson have agreed to a three-year contract extension, ESPN’s John Clayton reports.

According to Clayton, the deal is worth $13.35 million and includes $5 million in promised cash.

A second-round choice out of Kansas State in 2008, the nifty and nimble Nelson hauled in 100 passes for 1,268 yards and six scores over the first three regular seasons of his career before busting loose with 21 catches for 286 yards and three touchdowns during the club’s 2010 Super Bowl championship journey.

The former Wildcat standout caught nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in the Packers’ 31-25 win over the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

Making $600,000 in the final season of a four-year, $4.635 million rookie deal, Nelson has 15 receptions for 192 yards and three touchdowns over the first four contests of the 2011 campaign.
