The Packers and veteran receiver Jordy Nelson no doubt took notice of the contract extension Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White signed on Thursday. Like Nelson, White was entering the final year of his contract and was seeking a long-term extension. Although the specific breakdown of the contract was not yet available, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported that it is worth up to $30 million over four seasons and included $18 million in guaranteed money. Nelson is seeking all of that -- and more. A source familiar with the negotiations said Nelson wants a deal worth at least $10 million per season. That would be a major increase from his current contract, which averages $4.2 million per season and ranks 34th among all NFL receivers. White was due to make $5 million this season. Nelson's 2014 pay is scheduled to be $3.5 million as part of the three-year, $12.6 million contract extension he signed on Sept. 29, 2011. That contract turned out to be a bargain for the Packers, but Nelson ended up leaving money on the table.
