Packers to Sign Jimmy Graham, Release Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers will release wide receiver Jordy Nelson, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. And after the Packers rewarded Davante Adams, who continued to produce despite the QB instability, with a monster extension in December, the writing was on the wall for Nelson to be released. Jordy will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame. The announcement came minutes after news broke that the team plans to sign tight end Jimmy Graham. He caught 57 passes for 520 yards with 10 touchdowns a year ago with the Seahawks. 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. That said, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has to be giddy at the prospect of finding Graham in the end zone. He ranks No. 3 in franchise history in receptions (550), No. 5 in receiving yards (7,848), No. 2 in touchdown receptions (69) and No. 3 in 100-yard receiving games (25).

It's unclear whether the Packers approached Nelson about taking a pay cut to stay and he refused, or if they simply decided it was time to move on from him. He had a down year in 2017, catching just 6 touchdowns in the regular season and amassing only 482 yards as he fought through nagging injuries. The 31-year-old did not have any interceptions last season, though he had six in 2016. "He's still a really good player in my eyes".
