How can you not love Keisean Nixon? The Green Bay Packers' first-team All-Pro returner gave the perfect response on Twitter to the report that Marcedes Lewis won't be back this season.
Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated reported that the Packers won't re-sign the veteran tight end.
It's an unsurprising decision by the Packers, but perhaps one they should reconsider. Green Bay did draft tight ends Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft, but Lewis could help them, not limit their opportunities in year one.
Lewis returning would've also helped Jordan Love in his first season as the Packers' starting quarterback.
With the Packers reportedly moving on from Lewis, cornerback Keisean Nixon gave his thoughts on Twitter.
Keisean Nixon has perfect response to report Packers won't re-sign Marcedes Lewis
Keisean Nixon had previously tweeted that he wanted the Packers to re-sign Marcedes Lewis. Following Huber's report that Lewis won't be back, Nixon had the perfect response.
Nixon then responded to a tweet from Andy Herman of the 'Pack-A-Day' podcast, who suggested that the Packers were looking forward to 2024. It's fair to say that Nixon disagrees with that opinion.
Herman makes a valid point. The Packers appear to be a team building for their long-term future, which makes sense as they have limited cap space. They take on a $40 million dead cap hit following Aaron Rodgers' departure, but with his contract off the books next year, they will have more flexibility in 2024.
While Herman isn't wrong, it's still great to see Nixon's reaction. It shows his belief in the current team and his desire to win now.
Nixon will have a crucial role to play this year. With Eric Stokes recovering from a significant injury, Nixon could be in the starting lineup in the slot to begin the season.
He is also one of the Packers' most important special teams players, of course, having been named a first-team All-Pro after leading the league in kick return yards last season.
Even with Aaron Rodgers gone and the Packers replacing several starters, Nixon believes in the 2023 team. And, who knows, maybe he can change the Packers' minds if he makes that phone call.
