Raiders release Nelson after 1 season

Report Raiders cutting former Packers WR Jordy Nelson

With the flurry of roster moves that included signing Antonio Brown, the Raiders have released Jordy Nelson, the team announced Thursday. He took 12 snaps and threw three passes for Oakland.

McCarron's $1.9 million base salary would have been guaranteed on Sunday, though a $3 million roster bonus would have been guaranteed on Friday. He was signed to a two-year, $15 million deal.

McCarron suffered a shoulder injury in the Bills' second preseason game and missed the third contest. As NFL teams reduced their 90-player preseason rosters to the regular-season limit of 53 on September 1, Buffalo traded McCarron to Oakland for a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

With the Raiders in 2018, Nelson played a featured wide receiver position that perhaps he might not had with Green Bay after having approximately half the receptions and touchdowns he had in 2017 compared to 2016.
