NFL wide receiver Jordy Nelson: Net worth $25 million
Jordy Nelson’s rural upbringing led him to become an avowed penny-pincher.
Nelson was raised on a farm in Kansas and often performed demanding physical work to earn money before reaching the NFL.
Some of Nelson’s more miserly tendencies included flying into Milwaukee and then driving to Green Bay for former team’s home games, rather than booking a direct flight to Green Bay itself.
Nelson’s reasoning? It was cheaper.
