Packers WR Jordy Nelson prefers deal before season begins

Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson says he would prefer to sign another extension before the season rather than playing out the final year of his contract.

Nelson caught a career-high 85 passes for a career-best 1,314 yards with eight touchdowns last season. He said Tuesday he's not sure the team and his agent have had substantive talks about a contract extension.

Nelson signed a three-year, $13.9 million extension in 2011.
