Packers and Jordy Nelson have struck a deal. It’s a 4-year extension worth $39 million.
So close to the $10 million per that Nelson was seeking. So close. This deal locks up Nelson and obviously makes him one happy receiver. he and Aaron Rodgers have a fantastic rapport on the field and have partnered up for over 3,300 yards and 30 touchdowns over the last three seasons. There is no reason to think they can't do it again for another four.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Lions will not use the franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There has been a lot of back-and-forth internally as to whether the Lions want to bring Suh back and obviously cost is a major issue as he will command quite the hefty salary on the open market. But they won't use the franchise tag here as they know the bitterness it will cause between player and team. Look for the Lions to make the defensive lineman a competitive offer but they won't break the bank to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender
