Jordy Nelson is known for being a touchdown machine in the Green Bay Packers' often-explosive passing game.
What he's not known for is any touchdown celebration.
"It's just best not to do anything. You don't ever know what the league will do," he admitted to 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Afternoon News."
"It's just best to hand the football off and move on."
When we suggested Nelson could do a "Full Nelson" wrestling move with the football after a score, he admitted, "I might get in trouble. You can't use the football as a prop. Unless you're suggesting you'll pay the fine every time that happens, I don't think that will work."
However, he has seen James Jones score TD's, including one with a rather unusual dance celebration afterward on Sunday in the win over the Detroit Lions.
"I thought it was awesome. He's got a two-year-old son now. That's how his son will dance at the house. James had one of his buddies in town who said 'If you score a touchdown, that's how you have to do it.' "
One thing Nelson occasionally does after a score is keep the football.
"I have my Super Bowl ball when I caught a touchdown, the first touchdown of my career, my first touchdown at Lambeau, the longest touchdown of my career. I need to get my touchdown in the next couple weeks so it can have the pink ribbon on it."
