Green Bay Packers Release Jordy Nelson

Fantasy Football Breaking News

Sandwiched in there was his 2015 season, which Nelson missed the entirety of thanks to a torn ACL.

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's Chris Wesseling. That time has now certainly come to an end with the Packers announcing on Tuesday that they have released Nelson. So with Nelson in search of a new home, here are three reasons why the Rams should at least consider the possibility of the wideout coming on board. His 7848 yards placed him fifth, his 69 touchdowns ranked only behind legendary Don Hutson and his 25, 100 yard games was third most.

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).

Behar said: " That's called mental illness . if I'm not correct, he's hearing voices". Some had called for her to be fired or for the show to be boycotted as a result.

"I don't think at this time (but) you never say never", Gutekunst said.

The 32-year-old Nelson was scheduled to make $10.25 million in salary and bonuses in the final season of a four-year, $39 million contract. He was a vital part of the Superbowl XLI, catching a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011. Releasing Nelson may not be a permanent move, however. Attempts to reach Nelson Tuesday evening were unsuccessful. All six of those TDs came before Rodgers' Oct. 15 injury. "Had a conversation with him afterward, but not before".

He posted 1,519 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014 and 1,257 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in 2016 as one of the best receivers in the league for those respective seasons. The release could be temporary due to Nelson's willingness to take a pay cut. He is an adoption advocate and has adopted two children with his wife.
