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
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
