There is high demand for recently released wide receiver Jordy Nelson.
Following up on a report that indicated multiple high-profile teams were interested in Nelson, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the former Green Bay Packer will visit with the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints following his trip to Oakland.
Though Nelson is coming off a rough 2017 campaign in which he caught just 53 passes for 482 yards and six touchdowns, Nelson is still a highly skilled receiver who can help an offense. In his career with Green Bay, he had four seasons of 1,200-plus yards and caught 13-plus touchdowns three times.
All told, Nelson has caught 550 passes for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns in his nine-year career and clearly doesn’t believe he’s over the hill just yet.
