Raiders could cut Michael Crabtree if they sign Jordy Nelson

Raiders could cut Michael Crabtree if they sign Jordy Nelson

Cook was a gem of a signing but left as a free agent last March, while Bennett turned out to be a colossal mistake as teammates believed he quit on the team after quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone last October.

Asked if the Packers offered Nelson the opportunity to come back in 2018 at a reduced salary, Gutekunst said, "There were a lot of discussions that went on".

General manager Reggie McKenzie was also in Green Bay when the Packers drafted him.

Now official: Packers have released Jordy Nelson. He will be a big addition for Green Bay, though the team is also subtracting a key piece with the release of Nelson.

The loss of Nelson happened on the same day as news of the signing of TE Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Geomagnetic solar storm on Earth: Everything you need to know
Geomagnetic storms are measured on a scale of G1 to G5, with G1 being the most minor and G5 being the most severe. One storm occurred in 1859, while the latter occurred in 1989, which resulted in a nine-hour blackout in Canada.

Nelson has been an integral piece of the Packers' offense since emerging as a starter in 2011. Nelson, 32, ranks near the top of the team's record books with 550 receptions (third), 7,848 receiving yards (fifth) and 69 touchdown catches (second). That earned him a four-year, $39 million contract extension in 2014 - a deal he ultimately couldn't live up to as age and injury eroded his impact on the game. 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. "But at the end of the day, I think ultimately we just decided that where we're heading, this is the best decision for us - without getting into too many details".

The team declined to place a franchise tag on Graham that would have meant paying him more than $15 million in 2018 - he had made $10 million a season the last four years when he was the highest-paid tight end in the National Football League each year. But I am glad we don't have to see him sit on the bench like Donald Driver did in his a year ago, catching all of seven passes.

Nelson will be 33 years old when next season starts and he's coming off a down year, by all standards.

Crabtree led the team in catches last season with 58 (for 618 yards) and receiving touchdowns (8).
