Green Bay Packers rumors: Jimmy Graham on radar

Green Bay Packers rumors: Jimmy Graham on radar

"We can not thank Jordy enough for all that he has given the Green Bay Packers and our community for the past 10 years", Gutekunst said.

According to a source associated with Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Green Bay Packers are releasing veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson. The team is in need of a pass-catching tight end while Graham had his greatest success as a player with Drew Brees as his quarterback.

Over his eight year National Football League career, Graham has tallied 556 receptions for 6,800 yards and 69 touchdowns. "Jordy will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame".

Graham has played the last three seasons in Seattle.

In 2016, Nelson was phenomenal during his comeback season after missing the entire 2015 campaign.

Likewise, he urged the thousands of visitors in town - many at the South by Southwest Conference and Festivals - to be cautious. Detectives are linking the incidents to a similar bombing in the city earlier in March, in which a 39-year-old man was killed.

In addition, he did not have a single game where he recored more than seven passes. The Packers missed the playoffs past year after Rodgers was sidelined for nine games due to a shoulder injury. Nelson was just the fourth receiver in Super Bowl history with nine-plus receptions for at least 140 yards and touchdown.

Even when Rodgers returned the wideout struggled to get any separation and showed his deficiencies.

"Another team, the Green Bay Packers certainly seem to be interested, too", Rapoport said.

Nelson, set to turn 33 in May, was scheduled to earn $10.25 million in 2018 and carry a salary-cap number of $12.52 million. His presence will definitely be missed at 1265 Lombardi Ave.
