Jordy Nelson: 5 Possible landing spots in 2018 following release

Jordy Nelson: 5 Possible landing spots in 2018 following release

The Green Bay Packers have released Super Bowl-winning wide receiver Jordy Nelson and will reportedly sign tight end Jimmy Graham once free agency opens. "We wish Jordy, his wife Emily, and the rest of their family all the best".

But the tight end played just seven games before he was released due to concerns about a shoulder injury the Packers say he didn't disclose.

The soon to be 33-year-old Nelson had a down year in Green Bay last year, hauling in 53 passes for 482 yards and six touchdowns.

We're not 100 percent sure how Packers players are responding to this release.

On Tuesday, Graham reached an agreement with the Green Bay Packers.

I don't make payments from my wrist all that often, but for some buyers, the $30 premium for the special edition may be worth it. Announced by Fitbit today, the Versa is described as an "intuitive" smartwatch for communication and health and fitness.

According to, Nelson, who was selected by the Packers in the second round (No. 36 overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Kansas State, played in 136 regular-season games with 88 starts during his 10 seasons with Green Bay (2008-17).

They've got some big questions at the tight end position.

Coach Mike McCarthy has stressed the importance of a seam-stretching tight end to Rodgers' offense. He had a down year last year with Aaron Rodgers injured, but had 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2016. And dropped passes were also an issue as Graham tied for the second-most in the National Football League with seven in 2017, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

In that same game, Nelson set up the game-winning touchdown with a 38-yard catch to the Steelers' 2-yard line. He has twice caught more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season, but not since 2013 - his final year with the Saints.

Count Paul Richardson as the first of the Seahawks' 16 unrestricted free agents to move on as the NFL Network reported Tuesday morning he will sign a five-year, $40 million contract with Washington. For now, Cobb remains despite a $9.5 million salary-cap charge for this season.
