  NFL | Jordy Nelson retires    Wed Mar 27, 10:57 AM

Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) announced his retirement Wednesday, March 27.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick out of Kansas State in the 2008 NFL draft, Nelson was a touchdown machine and one of Aaron Rodgers favorite targets for a decade. Last year, Nelson spent one forgettable season with the Raiders and now finds himself headed into retirement at 33-years old.

  Seahawks | Jordy Nelson visiting Seahawks    Mon Mar 18, 10:35 AM

Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Monday, March 18.

Footballguys view: Nelson was released only a few days ago yet seems to be drawing plenty of interest on the open market. He's not the player he used to be, but Nelson could work nicely as a no.3 wideout in Seattle behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett.

  Raiders | Jordy Nelson cut    Thu Mar 14, 05:09 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson was released Thursday, March 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders have revamped their wide receiver corps by trading for Antonio Brown and adding Tyrell Williams in free agency. That means there wasn't any room for Nelson. He's not what he used to be, but Nelson caught 63 passes in 2018 for the Raiders. He'll have a market for his services with a team in need of reliable veteran depth.

Footballguys view: That seems to be a bit high. We'll see if the Raiders want to move on from the veteran receiver.

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 22 and he was lifted from the injury report leading up to the Week 16 game Monday, Dec. 24 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Nelson and the Raiders passing attack will be going up against a banged up Broncos secondary. We're not crazy about Nelson's potential this week but he should produce like a low-end WR3 or flex play in Week 16.

  Raiders | Jordy Nelson proving himself    Thu Aug 2, 03:08 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson has been moving well, running polished routes and showing leadership in training camp. He is also developing good timing with QB Derek Carr.

Footballguys view: It was interesting that the Packers cut bait after what amounted to one bad season, but that might work out for Oakland. Sure, there is risk due to his 33 years, but the move inside could help. If he can bounce back, Carr and Amari Cooper will both benefit. His current ADP of 44th receiver off the board is about where he should be right now, but he could end up surpassing that.

  Raiders | Jordy Nelson still a burner?    Fri Jul 27, 11:01 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson can still run and is 'one of the fastest skill guys' on the team, according to QB Derek Carr, and head coach Jon Gruden said Nelson can still lineup anywhere and run any route.

Footballguys view: With all due respect to Nelson and Carr, there is little evidence of this on 2017 tape. Nelson will start, but will never approach the value he had with Aaron Rodgers again.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr praised WR Jordy Nelson's attention to detail and said he understands why Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers loved throwing to Nelson.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper learning from Jordy Nelson    Sat May 26, 11:55 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has been learning a lot from WR Jordy Nelson.

Footballguys view: Cooper has amazing athletic ability but inconsistent play and too many drops have plagued his game as a pro. We'll see if the Raiders offense and Cooper can be in for a bounce-back season in 2018. Cooper finished 2017 as the no.30 fantasy wide receiver in standard-scoring leagues, but he's got the ability to be a top-15 player at his position. He's currently going off the board at WR14 (3.10) in 12-team standard leagues.

  Raiders | Jordy Nelson, Oakland agree to terms    Thu Mar 15, 04:08 PM

Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 15, worth $15 million. The deal includes $13 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Nelson now starts opposite Amari Cooper and is the no2 wideout for the Raiders in 2018. Fantasy owners will have to see if Nelson is back to his old form even a little bit after a disappointing 2017 season. Once Aaron Rodgers was hurt, Nelson never seemed to develop a strong rapport with Brett Hundley.
