GREEN BAY, Wis. — Former Green Bay Packers wide reciever, Pro-Bowler, and Super Bowl Champion Jordy Nelson is reportedly retiring from the NFL.

According to his former teammate and current NFL Network analyst, James Jones, Nelson is stepping away from football after more than a decade in the league.

Without Nelson's presence in Super Bowl XLV, the Packers may not have the Lombardi Trophy.

Nelson was the game's leading receiver, 140 yards and touchdown.

The former second-team NFL All-Pro will walk away with over 8,500 total yards and 72 touchdowns (69 with the Packers).
