Former Raiders receiver Jordy Nelson reflects on his first year retired

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson officially retired from the NFL this spring after nine seasons with the Packers and his final go being last year with the Raiders. Despite his past success and winning a Super Bowl ring, Nelson doesn't think about football too much these days.

“My life didn’t go as football went. A loss on Sunday didn’t ruin my week," Nelson told NBC Sports' Tim Layden. "And I knew whenever I was done, I would come home and help my brother [Mike] farm.”

Nelson, now 34, is back on his family farm in Riley County, Kansas.
