Jordy Nelson tells ESPN he still works on farm

Green Bay, WI (WXOW) -

Despite having signed $39 million contract, Green Bay Packers wide received Jordy Nelson still puts in 12 hours a day on his family farm in the off-season, according to ESPN.

The farm is located in a small town in Kansas called Riley.

Nelson told ESPN the Magazine he would drive the combine to cut wheat or round up the 1,000-cow herd. The population in Riley is only 992 people.

"Working cattle is my favorite farm duty," Nelson told ESPN. "I probably identify more as a farmer” than as a football player.

Nelson was drafted in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft.
