Packers release Jordy Nelson, will Seahawks pursue the wide receiver?

Packers release Jordy Nelson, will Seahawks pursue the wide receiver?”

He was a vital part of the Superbowl XLI, catching a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011.

The Green Bay Packers, in order to shed the salary necessary to sign tight end Jimmy Graham, have cut ties with wide receiver Jordy Nelson. Previous year with the Seahawks, Graham finished with 57 receptions for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Tuesday's move came minutes after NFL.com reported the impending signing of Graham, who has spent the last three years with the Seattle Seahawks. Although his yards per catch were a surprisingly low 9.1 (down from a career-best 14.2 in 2016), there's still a role for him to help patrol the middle of the field.

Jordy Nelson is a free-agent. The Packers also flip-flopped with the Browns on their fourth- and fifth-round picks, meaning Green Bay will select at the top of each of those rounds. In a related move, the Packers released veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

Last year, the Packers signed Martellus Bennett to a three-year, big-money deal, and it turned out poorly. A huge factor in his down season was the absence of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who missed the majority of the season with a shoulder injury. To that point, he had six touchdowns in the first five games of the season, but he never caught another one. Even at age 32, soon to be 33 in May, as long as receivers can get open, then age shouldn't matter. "But from what I've heard about Chicago, it's an wonderful city and football town".

Graham was the highest-paid tight end in the league, and that likely won't change this season. Graham's true value to the Seahawks past year was seen in the team-best 10 touchdowns he hauled in. He caught 550 passes to rank third in franchise history.

Does this mean the Packers will dive into every free agent opportunity that comes their way, with deals like Kirk Cousins' $28 million/year guaranteed with the Vikings?
