Packers to Sign Jimmy Graham, Release Jordy Nelson
Mar 14, 2018, 05:47
Nelson, who eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards four times with the Packers, won a Super Bowl during his third season in Green Bay and ranks fourth in the National Football League in touchdown receptions (63) since 2011 despite missing the entire 2015 season due to injury.
But as the new Green Bay Packers GM has made it clear, these are not Ted Thompson's Packers anymore.
Over nine seasons, Nelson would rack up 550 receptions for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns.
Nelson would immediately slot in as Seattle's number two receiving option and would benefit tremendously from having Russell Wilson as his quarterback, as opposed to Brett Hundley who was his primary QB a year ago in Rodgers' absence. That deal is expected to become official on Wednesday afternoon.
No one will ever forget the contributions #87 brought to Green Bay anytime soon.
As Nelson turns the page to another chapter in his career, two teams have emerged as likely contenders for his services: the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders, according to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling. For now, Cobb remains despite a $9.5 million salary-cap charge for this season. Ironically, that came a year after he won Comeback Player of the Year. "He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success". In 2016, Nelson notched 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.

"We wish Jordy, his wife Emily, and the rest of their family all the best". Nelson caught six touchdowns from Rodgers and didn't catch another one after Rodgers broke his collarbone.
Nelson, who will be 33 in May, joins the free-agent market as one of the better wide receivers up for the taking.
