Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- On their first day of practice in the 2014 season, the Green Bay Packers signed wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a four-year extension on Saturday with the terms of the deal still to be released.

A season ago, the 29-year-old racked up 85 catches for 1,314 yards, both careers highs, along with eight touchdowns.

Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters afterward that he didn't find out until about midway through practice.

In his six-year career, Nelson has 4,590 receiving yards and 36 touchdown catches, all with the Packers.
