Packers to release star WR Jordy Nelson

Teams can not officially sign players until Wednesday, March 14, but a big chunk of high profile free agents have already reached agreements with new teams. Nelson would be a quality veteran to put with Joe Flacco and a young receiver added through the draft. He has twice caught more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season, but not since 2013 - his final year with the Saints.

Understandably, the former Pro Bowler had no interest in slashing his income by over $8 million. Cook was a gem of a signing but left as a free agent last March, while Bennett turned out to be a colossal mistake as teammates believed he quit on the team after quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone last October. He was scheduled to count over a little over $12.5 million on the Packers' cap in 2018.

Graham had 10 receiving touchdowns last season, most among tight ends and tied for second most leaguewide.

Lee said investigators should be based out of Bangladesh and work for three years to "collect, consolidate, map, analyse and maintain evidence of human rights violations and abuses".

Excluding passes thrown by Green Bay's atrocious backup QB Brett Hundley, Nelson caught over 80 percent of the passes thrown his way by QB Aaron Rodgers over the past two seasons. However, Nelson struggled in 2017 as Rodgers missed significant time, finishing with 53 catches for 482 yards and six scores.

It certainly makes sense that a number of teams would be interested in Nelson.

In a corresponding move, Green Bay is also releasing Jordy Nelson, according to Schefter.

The 49ers will take on Jimmy Graham's team next season, but it won't be Seattle. He signed a three-year, $21 million deal but played in only seven games before he was waived with the designation that he failed to disclose a medical condition (shoulder) in what proved to be an ugly divorce.

Over nine seasons, Nelson would rack up 550 receptions for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns. "We wish Jordy, his wife Emily, and the rest of their family all the best".

The fact #Packers WR Jordy Nelson was released means his career with them is over. "He's such a good guy and it's fun watching him and Rodgers just do what they do, like they do the little thumbs up, they're just such good friends and it's really heartbreaking to see a fan-favorite like that go".
