Packers release KS native Jordy Nelson

Jamal Adams tried recruiting ex Packers WR Jordy Nelson to Jets via Twitter

Jimmy Graham is reportedly heading to the Packers. Carr is certainly not at Rodgers level yet, but he's shown flashes of potentially entering that quarterbacking stratosphere one day over the past couple seasons, and wouldn't be too much of a drop-off for Nelson.

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Graham, 31, spent the past three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks after breaking into the league with the New Orleans Saints as a third-round pick in 2010. Prior to that, he was a member of the Saints.

Nelson played a crucial role in the Packers' run to and victory in Super Bowl 45 over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Nelson has been an integral piece of the Packers' offense since emerging as a starter in 2011. Nelson would be another quality receiver for Tom Brady, who already has Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski. "I think Jordy is a really good player, and you certainly don't want to let him walk out the door".

If the Packers don't get a motivated Wilkerson, it'll be tough to argue this wasn't a risk worth taking by new GM Brian Gutekunst in an effort to improve the NFL's 21st-ranked 'D, ' a unit that's been porous for far too long. Cutting Nelson, despite his decade of loyal service, saves the franchise more than $10 million in cap room.

Rodgers then posted a tribute to Nelson on Instagram.

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

He tallied just 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns for the Packers in a season that saw quarterback Aaron Rodgers limited to a mere seven games because of his broken collarbone. The majority of his production came from his rapport with Rodgers.

Asked if he talked to Rodgers about the decision, Gutekunst replied, "Talked to Aaron afterward". The Nelsons have spoken about their adoption of two children.

Green Bay added to its free-agency splash Tuesday by reaching an agreement with Wilkerson, the once-promising defensive end the Jets released February 28.

Nelson took over for Donald Driver in hosting the yearly charity softball game played at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.
