It's a good thing the Packers will not have to break the bank for him--that is as long as the bank has at least $10 million a season for him.
What is eve more surprising is that he is even making demands like this in the first place when just a few weeks ago he said that the team does not need to break the bank for him:
“What I got in that last deal, I’ll never spend it all anyway,” Nelson said in early June. “So I’m not worried about it.”
His last deal was a three-year extension for $12.6 million.
After the season he had last year no one can fault him for wanting more money (he deserves it). However, if he was going to demand a base that would put him among the top four wide receivers in the league he shouldn't have said he wasn't worried about it.
Now he looks like a hypocrite.
