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.
