Packers to Release Jordy Nelson

Packers to Release Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers will release wide receiver Jordy Nelson, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Past year with the Seahawks, Graham finished with 57 receptions for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Graham's three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks were a mixed bag.

In that same game, Nelson set up the game-winning touchdown with a 38-yard catch to the Steelers' 2-yard line.

The Packers' transition from Ted Thompson to Brian Gutekunst has brought about a change in philosophy. His release saves Green Bay more than $10.2 million.

The Green Bay Packers released veteran Jordy Nelson, the third-leading receiver in franchise history and one of Rodgers' top targets in the passing game.

Last year, the Packers signed Martellus Bennett to a three-year, big-money deal, and it turned out poorly.

Nelson could also slide into the vacated role left behind by Danny Amendola in New England, considering NFL Network's Dan Hellie reported he is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins. He has twice caught more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season, but not since 2013 - his final year with the Saints. The Pro Bowler and superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers formed one of the most dynamic duos in the National Football League, regularly leading their prolific offense to the postseason while winning Super Bowl XLV.

I've heard it a thousand times."It's a young man's game". The bidding for him could become too rich for the Packers' blood, leading perhaps to a less expensive cornerback signing.

While fans will miss Jordy, they're awaiting to see what the packers' next moves will be. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury. He's a candidate to start at right guard if veteran Jahri Evans, the starter there last season, doesn't return or decides to retire. The way he snapped around to catch back-shoulder passes from Rodgers was unmatched.
