Packers re-sign Nixon

The player many fans and pundits credit with turning around the fortunes of the Green Bay Packers' special teams unit has reportedly signed a new deal.


Multiple sources say the Packers have re-signed kick and punt returner Keisan Nixon to a one-year, $6 million deal. It is a big raise for the primarily special teamer, who signed a one-year, $965,000 contract to play for the Green and Gold last year. 


It was a part of a busy day in the NFL as the legal tampering period started on Monday ahead of the official start of free agency on Wednesday. NFL Insider Trey Wingo had reported a long-awaited deal between the Packers and the New York Jets involving Aaron Rodgers and whipped Twitter into a frenzy because of it. Several sources refuted the report, saying that Rodgers has not made a final decision one way or the other.
