This just came up because Jordy Nelson signed a one-day contract with the Packers. This has annoyed me for years. A player leaves a team in free agency to go somewhere else, yet when he's ready to retire, he signs a one-day contract with his old team so he can "retire as a X". It's ridiculous. It's retarded. It's almost as dumb as the Brits "knighting" some idiot entertainer and then calling him "Sir" for the rest of his life. Embarrassing. Jordy Nelson, you didn't retire as a Packer. You retired as a Raider. Signing a piece of paper for no money doesn't change anything. This meaningless symbolic gesture really makes you feel better? Grow up, idiot. This practice should be made illegal. Discuss.
