Jordy Nelson to visit Raiders

Jordy Nelson plans to visit the Oakland Raiders after being informed of his release by the Green Bay Packers.

Nelson has been one of Aaron Rodgers? favorite targets for several years, catching 195 passes for 2,776 yards and 27 touchdowns from 2014-2016 despite missing the entire 2015 campaign with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. However, Nelson struggled in 2017 as Rodgers missed significant time, finishing with 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns.

He ranks third in team history in receptions (550) and second in touchdown catches (69).

Nelson, who turns 33 in May, intends to continue his playing career, according to an ESPN report.

In addition to the Raiders, the Patriots, Ravens, Seahawks and 49ers are expected to pursue him, with New England being a spot of interest to Nelson.
