Corey Nelson crying at his wedding goes viral
Last spring, Broncos linebacker Corey Nelson married Jordan Dixon. A photo of Nelson crying at their wedding has gone viral and appeared on multiple social media pages.
“This is probably the sixth time I’ve seen our wedding picture. Can’t believe it’s gone viral. So glad it brings joy to people,” Mrs. Nelson said of the above post, which has more than 1,000 retweets.
Corey and Jordan, who have an 18-month-old daughter, Phoenix, met while they were both attending the University of Oklahoma.
Corey, 25, joined the Broncos as a seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He served mostly as a special teams contributor to start his career but stepped up last season to record 67 tackles and defend five passes in five starts.
Entering his fourth season in the NFL, Nelson has recorded 100 career tackles and one sack. He’s set to have a base salary of $690,000 this year and will become a free agent next offseason.
