Packers To Sign TE Jimmy Graham

After the Green Bay Packers announced they released the veteran wide receiver Tuesday, Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports reported Nelson was "targeting" the New England Patriots as a possible destination and "knew he was being released".

Nelson has posted four seasons of at least 1,200 receiving yards and 69 career receiving touchdowns.

Graham was the highest-paid tight end in the league, and that likely won't change this season.

Nelson wasn't the fastest receiver ever to put on a Packers uniform, nor was he the best route runner.

Nelson's age and injury history are concerning, but the wideout has been an above-average, borderline elite pass-catcher for six years. In 2017, he caught 10 touchdown passes - all in the red zone - and last season ranked tops among tight ends and tied for second among all pass-catchers for receiving scores.

So indeed, where does this leave quarterback Aaron Rodgers when it comes to not having his favorite target?

But, in the words of Pete Prisco, if you are old and slow and make too much dough, you must go. Anthony was traded to Miami for a fifth-rounder last season.

According to Jason Wilde of ESPN and the Wisconsin State Journal, the Packers offered Nelson a salary nearing the 10-year veteran minimum, but the veteran receiver declined. Gutekunst said the team is "looking heavily" at the cornerback position, though he likes the prospects the Packers still have on the roster.

"We'll look at every avenue to help improve our team", Gutekunst said.

"Playing big at big moments, you know, I think he always came through for us".
