The Green Bay Packers have not been too active in free agency. However, they prioritized bringing back one of their 2022 standouts; All-Pro kick returner and cornerback Keisean Nixon.
Nixon's new contract is a one-year/$4 million deal. The deal has four void years meaning that while he will be paid past 2023, he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2024. It has been a long time since Green Bay has had an electric kick returner, so if Nixon has another All-Pro caliber season, he may be brought back again on a more long-term basis.
Keisean Nixon's NFL Career
2022 was Nixon's first season with the Green Bay Packers. He spent the last three seasons with the Raiders in both Oakland and Las Vegas. He played 692 snaps on special teams in three seasons with the Raiders. When Rich Bisaccia was hired as the special team coordinator Keisean Nixon signed with the Packers. Although he did not start the year off as the team's primary kick returner, he never looked back after getting the job.
Nixon became the full-time kick returner in Week 8 and made an instant impact. Despite not getting the job until halfway through the year, he finished the season with 1,009 kick return yards, leading the NFL. As a Packer, Nixon also made an impact on defense. Injuries in the secondary led to more playing time at cornerback, and Nixon filled in well. He started four games and recorded one interception, two passes defended, 28 tackles, and one tackle for a loss.
Keisean Nixon: The Future of the Packers' Special Teams
With news that team veterans Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb, and Allen Lazard could all be out the door and heading to New York, Green Bay is going through a transitioning period. Nixon will join the likes of RBs AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones, plus WR Christian Watson, as some of the only proven play-makers on the Packers.
With Bisaccia still running the special teams, it'll be in his and Nixon's hands to set up new Packers starting QB Jordan Love with good field position. Expect another difference-making big season from Keisean Nixon in Green Bay!
