That’s because Nelson’s longtime girlfriend, Kelsi Reich, is a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, according to Bills.com
“She works for the Dallas Cowboys and roots for the Dallas Cowboys, but I know she’ll have some inside joy if I do well,” said Nelson. “So it’s going to be a fun experience and I’m going to definitely be looking and record the TV copy and see if they show her a couple of times to see her reaction. It’s going to be fun. It’s something we’ve been looking forward to for some time and we’ve already been trash talking back and forth a little bit.”
In fact, she may not be the only one cheering if the Bills wide receiver finds pay dirt, as the Texas native will have about 80 fans in the seats this Sunday. Will those friends and family members be witnessing an Ian Johnson-like proposal?
“I can honestly tell you 100 percent it will not be a proposal. Been there and done that,” said Nelson. “I want to do something that hasn’t been done before, but the situation has to be right. I’m not a big celebration guy when I score, but this is a special situation and if something happens I’ll be looking to enjoy the situation.”
