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.

Kelvin Benjamin has never been at the level of Jordy. Jordy's highlight video showed separation and times when he was on an island by himself when get caught the ball. Kelvin Benjamin never got open like that. He had 63 catches last year and a couple 8 or 9 catch games

His tank looked pretty empty last year. He really lost a few steps. I don't think you are going to see a resurgence at 34.

Rodney Harrison Pats juice can save him.

The Raiders paid him a $3.6 mil. roster bonus in December. It's not my money, but that's not how you run an organization.

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

I am virtually positive this is where he ends up. Rodgers was not happy that they let him go in the first place.

I'm not sure.   Seems a bit redundant with Beasley and Kroft and whomever we draft.   I see him in GB back with Rodgers.

Bring him in! 38 catches in the final 5 games this year.  

 

there is that.  He could be a good add if the speed is still there.  has great hands, which is a plus catching 100 mph balls from allen!

Report: Former Packers great Nelson retiring

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer
 

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson, one of cornerstones of the Green Bay Packers offense for a decade, is retiring from the NFL after playing last year for the Oakland Raiders.

 

Nelson, who turns 34 on May 31, became a free agent when the Raiders released him on March 14 after just one season with the team.

 

James Jones, his former Packers teammate, first reported Nelson's decision on NFL Network.

Retired. 

 

But don't worry everyone. I am sure more washed up wide receivers with recognizable names Will be released before the season starts. So i’m sure there’s still plenty of pining left to do! lol (j/k)

To those that say he can't play any more, do some reading before you post and not just reading other posts here that say he has nothing left. I don't recall any of you calling for the Bills to release Kyle last year when he had even less  gas left.  Or you can just make $#;[] up, I suppose. We were talking about a 1 year deal. It's hardly Nelson's fault the Raiders sucked last year. He probably retired because playing for Gruden was such a letdownLOL.

I believe that by retiring, Jordy himself is saying he can't play any more.  But go on with your crusade.

I look at it this way...is he a player that can change the scoreboard numbers?Is he capable of being that 'guy' who gets us into the playoffs? I see Brown,Beasley,Foster and Jones being the top 4 right now..add in Anthony Johnson and that's a deep group.He's a name now...and not much more.jmho.

I’ve heard of him.. but his best years are in the rear view mirror.

 

Will always remember that drop he had vs the  Bills when we beat the Pack that one year.

I wouldn't mind bringing him in on a one year deal. Good lockerroom guy to have. Obviously not what he once was but just two seasons ago he was still Aaron Rodgers favorite target. Why not?

Yea and have him retire before the season begins... no thanks.
