Raiders Release Jordy Nelson

Lofton was a straight up beast, and still a legit deep threat by the time he got here. 

 

correct, Lofton was still fast, and fought for contested passes

 

Nelson looked close to done last year. I like the person but not the player.

Honestly he brings nothing to this offense. Definitely lost a step at least. 

We just added some weapons and have the draft to go there’s zero reason to rush out and sign a guy who is at best 4th receiver on the team. Yeah I said it, he’d be lucky to beat out Zay for the 4th spot 

I agree that he has lost a little but he is still a good route runner, has good hands and seems to settle into open gaps in the defense. He is easily better than Zay Jones even if he has slowed down a little bit.

Not gonna happen.  He'll end up back in GB.  He's insufficient without Aaron Rodgers

Someone needs to ask @Ice bowl 67 if GB would like to have him back for the twilight of his career now? Aaron might. 

This seems like a very likely outcome.

Older than dirt, but he can still play at a fairly high level. 1 year deal? I'd rather have him than Ansah.

Did you actually watch any of his Raiders highlights last year? Go on youtube and look at his 2018 highlights. He had no issue getting open at all

He had clearly lost a step last year, got very little separation, probably only getting slower. He'd be a better attitude/hands version of Kelvin Benjamin in our offense.

Before last week I would have said yes, but Brown and Beasley took care of the needed veteran presence.     Foster, Brown, Beasley, Jones, Mackenzie plus whoever is drafted is a good group to come into the season with.

We don't need him tbh. Also kinda expect him to end up back in GB.

Love the armchair GMs that assertively say “can’t get separation” who probably watched zero Raiders games and certainly didn’t watch the All-22 of a single Raiders play. 

 

That said, I doubt the Bills come calling.

Do you know what the problem is with judging a player based on highlight videos? All they show is highlights. I mean, Kelvin Benjamin has a highlight video out too.

Three years ago I would have been more interested.  Now? Not so much.

He looks like he just left the set of "Serpico."

I'd be down he played very well the last 6 games of last season.

Still has plenty in the tank and would be a good veteran for the locker room.  Yup! 

Not based on his performances in Oakland he doesn't.

Highlights are HIGHLIGHTS. No one makes bad highlight videos.

 

Get some bad music, and clever editting and you could get 5 minutes of Nathan Peterman looking amazing.
