Green Bay Packers Release Veteran WR Jordy Nelson

Nelson arguably had his most impressive season coming off his torn anterior cruciate ligament when he caught 97 passes for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Nelson had 550 receptions and 69 touchdown catches in 10 seasons in Green Bay. In addition to the Packers, the New Orleans Saints - the team he played on for five years to start his career - and the Chicago Bears were among the teams in the hunt for his services.

Jordy Nelson is a free-agent.

"I think for the most part Jordy Nelson will still be demanded by the Packer fans even though he's been released and everything like that", Luke Sigl, the store's assistant manager, said. A second-round pick in 2008, the former walk-on safety at Kansas State was a staple of the Packers' passing offense for the past decade and finishes his run in Green Bay as the third all-time leading receiver in franchise history.

It's a harsh reality in the National Football League but today's decision by Green Bay Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst to release popular veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson still came as a jolt.

The Green Bay Packers are hard at work in free agency.

Nelson and Rodgers hold the Packers' record for most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver duo with 65.

This one comes as a bit of a surprise, though the 32-year-old did look like he had lost a step last season. The Packers signed Martellus Bennett last offseason, but the team released him midseason saying he failed to disclose a previous injury.

The Packers made sure they didn't lose two of their up-and-coming young players when they extended qualifying offers to exclusive-rights free agents Michael Clark and Justin McCray, ESPN.com reported.

Last season Nelson's numbers dipped. He was also the NFL's comeback player of the year. For now, Cobb remains despite a $9.5 million salary-cap charge for this season. The way he snapped around to catch back-shoulder passes from Rodgers was unmatched.
