"Working cattle is my favorite farm duty," Nelson told ESPN. "I probably identify more as a farmer" than as a football player.

Nelson's family farm was started by his grandpa and is called the Nelson Angus Family Farm and features 2,000 acres of pastureland for cattle and another 2,000 for key crops like corn and beans.
