Nelson acknowledged there have been internal conversations with team officials about his future with the team, but he declined to elaborate.

“I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t (have talks),” Nelson said. “I did, but I’m not going to disclose that with you guys. I’ll keep that internal. As I’ve always done in the past. Like I said before, it’s the team’s option. I would love to continue to play here and be here and see this thing turn around. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed.”
