  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Re-ups with Green Bay

    The Packers are re-signing Nixon to a three-year, $18 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Nixon was named a first-team All-Pro in both 2022 and 2023 as a return man, but last season is when he saw his defensive role heightened, playing a career-high 809 snaps with the majority of those coming as the Packers' slot corner. He remained extremely effective on kickoff returns, averaging an NFL-best 26.1 yards per return while leading the league in total kickoff returns (30) and yards (782). On defense, Nixon racked up 80 tackles (59 solo), one interception and 0.5 sacks.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Another All-Pro season

    Nixon notched 80 tackles (59 solo), a half sack, an interception and six pass deflections over 17 games in the 2023 season. He also returned 30 kicks for 782 yards and 14 punts for 95 yards.

    Nixon's exploits in the return game earned him first-team All-Pro honors for a second straight year, and he was also more involved on the defensive side of the ball than he was in any of his first four seasons as a professional. Nixon will be a free agent this offseason and figures to garner interest from several teams, but the Packers will also presumably be interested in keeping him in Green Bay.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Big night in big win

    Nixon had 11 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 48-32 wild-card victory over the Cowboys.

    The first-team All-Pro kick returner did not run a kick back Sunday, but he did match the career-high 11 stops he made in Week 17. One way or another he will be key in Green Bay's upcoming matchup with San Francisco, and just how big a role he will fill will likely depend on the availability -- or lack thereof -- of top cornerback Jaire Alexander (ankle).

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Ready to go for Week 18

    Nixon (quadriceps) was a full participant at the Packers' practice Thursday.

    Nixon was considered limited at Wednesday's walkthrough, but Thursday's session erases any doubt about his availability for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bears. The dual-threat cornerback has made 18 tackles while also compiling 86 kick-return yards over the last two contests.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Limited Wednesday

    Nixon (quadriceps) was considered to be a limited participant at Green Bay's walkthrough Wednesday.

    Nixon was a limited participant all week prior to playing in the Packers' 33-10 win over the Vikings in Week 17, compiling a career-high 11 tackles in the contest, so Wednesday's status isn't a cause for concern quite yet. The cornerback will look to return to log a full practice prior to Sunday's significant matchup with the Bears, though he may not have to in order to appear in the contest.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Career-high tackles in win

    Nixon finished Sunday's 33-10 win over the Vikings with a team-high 11 tackles (seven solo), including a half-sack. He also returned one kick for 23 yards.

    Not only was it the first sack of Nixon's career -- shared with Devonte Wyatt -- but he also registered double-digit tackles in a game for the first time. Nixon took advantage of the one-game suspension of Jaire Alexander, as the former drew the start alongside Carrington Valentine. Nixon is up to 76 tackles (56 solo), six passes defended and one interception over 16 games this season.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Good to go versus Bucs

    Nixon (quadriceps) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Wes Hodklewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Nixon was a limited participant in practice all week and is set to suit up for Sunday's NFC matchup, during which he'll play his usual roles as both the slot cornerback and as the primary kick returner. He has already set a career high with 57 tackles in 13 games this season in addition to logging 647 kick return yards.
