Jordy Nelson should draw immediate interest from the Raiders

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.

General manager Reggie McKenzie was also in Green Bay when the Packers drafted him.

Nelson wasn't the fastest receiver ever to put on a Packers uniform, nor was he the best route runner.

This is the second consecutive offseason in which Green Bay added a big-name tight end. Cutting him frees up $10 million in cap space for the Packers. The Green Bay Packers have released fan and team favorite Jordy Nelson and, according to reports, signed TE Jimmy Graham and DE Muhammad Wilkerson. Nelson found that out Tuesday, when the team made a decision to release him and create more than $10 million in salary cap space - space they used on veteran tight end Jimmy Graham and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson, whom the team will sign Wednesday when the new NFL league year officially begins. After playing with a QB of Rodgers' caliber for his entire career, it's understandable that Nelson wants to work with another perennial All-Pro, like Tom Brady. It could come in somewhere around $5 million per year. He has twice caught more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season, but not since 2013 - his final year with the Saints.

An NFL scout said after Tuesday's moves that, at this point, he would pick Graham over Nelson.
