Packers release longtime WR Jordy Nelson

Billboard in Milwaukee urges Packers to sign Jimmy Graham

According to a source associated with Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Green Bay Packers are releasing veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

In three seasons with the Seahawks, Graham played in 45 games, recorded 176 receptions for 2,104 yards and 18 touchdowns.

The question now is: what's the market like for a 32 year-old, oft-injured receiver who has seen a dramatic reduction in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns this past season?

With quarterback Aaron Rodgers sidelined for 10 games with a fractured right collarbone, Nelson caught just 53 passes for 482 yards and six touchdowns last season.

Malaga 0 Barcelona 2
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi pulled out of the squad to face Malaga in La Liga on Saturday due to the birth of his third child. Any Chelsea fans hoping that Messi will be missing for their Champions League clash this week are sadly out of luck.

Graham was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth and fifth times in his career in 2016 and 2017.

The Packers are making moves after finishing 7-9 last season and hiring Brian Gutkunst to replace Ted Thompson as General Manager. Green Bay is releasing Jordy Nelson. The Packers landed a great consolation prize in Graham, but it's hard to replace Nelson's massive contributions and respected role as a locker room leader. Once Rodgers went down, Nelson did not score another touchdown. Jordy will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame.

Jordy Nelson and his wife, Emily have two sons, Royal and Brooks, and an adopted daughter, Adda Jo. Which means the Nelson's price-tag on the open market could come down.

Nelson has played for the Packers his entire career, starting in 2008.
