Packers to cut wide receiver Jordy Nelson, sign tight end Jimmy Graham

Fantasy Football Breaking News Packers set to go after Watkins, Graham, Robinson

That could change with a restructured contract for some of their veterans, including Aaron Rodgers.

Last year, Graham made the Pro Bowl after recording 57 catches, 520 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 2017 season was the first time since Graham was traded to the Seahawks in 2015 that he's been healthy enough to play in all 16 games.

That year, he posted career highs in catches (98) and receiving yards (1,519), and hauled in 13 touchdown catches. It was a rare free-agent foray from former GM Ted Thompson, who has moved into a behind-the-scenes role with the club. Nelson's absence leaves Davante Adams as the Packers' number-one wideout, while Geronimo Allison stands to see a big increase in opportunity unless the Packers invest more at the position. If anything, the Packers could re-sign Nelson as soon as tomorrow on a lower-paying deal if he really wants to stay in Green Bay.

While the Seahawks have certainly done more shedding of salary than they have spending, Nelson could represent an interesting addition for a team that lost two pass-catchers in a manner of hours in Graham and wide receiver Paul Richardson.

On the other hand, PPP leadership also held a meeting and discussed various options for Senate elections. His election as the first-ever Senate chairman from Balochistan marked the day's second historic moment.


Nelson could also slide into the vacated role left behind by Danny Amendola in New England, considering NFL Network's Dan Hellie reported he is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins. In total, he has eclipsed 1,200 yards four times, and has three seasons of double-digit touchdowns. "The best interest for our team moving forward". Some of that can be attributed to the absence of Aaron Rodgers with a broken collarbone, but Nelson looked like a slower version of himself even before Rodgers gave way to Brett Hundley.

Still. Nelson's 10 years with the Packers was historically productive.

Nelson has been a fixture on the team for the last 11 years on and off the field. He later was honored as the NFL Comeback Player of the Year.
