Jordy Nelson generating interest from multiple teams

Jordy Nelson generating interest from multiple teams

The deal, reportedly for three years, makes up for the loss of longtime wide receiver Jordy Nelson, whom it was announced Green Bay was releasing nearly immediately after the Graham news broke. In a move I have yet been able to totally process, the Packers released wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

The Packers struck a deal with former Pro Bowl TE Jimmy Graham Tuesday and were rumored to be in on prize WR1s, Sammy Watkins and Allen Robinson, albeit not without also releasing franchise great Jordy Nelson. Jordy will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame.

"Obviously one more (year) for sure", Nelson replied when asked how long he planned on playing.

Nelson is the only receiver in Packers history to produce three 13-plus TD campaigns and joins Sterling Sharpe as the only Packer with three 85-plus catch seasons. He will be a big addition for Green Bay, though the team is also subtracting a key piece with the release of Nelson.

Graham was expected to return to the New Orleans Saints but the two sides were unable to agree to terms. His 7848 yards placed him fifth, his 69 touchdowns ranked only behind legendary Don Hutson and his 25, 100 yard games was third most.

As promised, Gutekunst has taken a more aggressive free-agent approach than his predecessor, Ted Thompson. Schefter said that Nelson intends to play next season somewhere.

The Packers made an unofficial torch passing by signing Davante Adams to a four-year, $58 million extension back in December. Graham was reported to have agreed to a three-year deal, though financial terms had not yet been revealed.

He had 97 catches on 1,257 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns in 2016, rebounding from a knee injury that sidelined him the previous season. His lack of production could've been a result of quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing the majority of the season. However, in 2017, he had just 53 catches for 482 yards and six scores. Graham's contract will reportedly be for three years, but the dollar amount is still unknown.
