Raiders trying to finalize deal today for former Packers’ WR Jordy Nelson, who still is in Oakland, sources tell ESPN. “This is going to get done,” one source said of the talks. Nelson on his way to becoming a Raider.
So Raiders have a former Packers WR (Jordy Nelson) and former Packers TE (Jared Cook), signed by a former Packers executive (GM Reggie McKenzie), coached by a former Packers OC (Edgar Bennett), working under a former Packers WR coach (Jon Gruden). Lots of #Packers in Oakland.
Raiders are giving Jordy Nelson $15M for 2 years. This equals out to 30M if it was for 4 years.
Ravens are giving $29M to Ryan Grant for 4 years.
Why couldn’t we have spent that $29M on a WR like Jordy Nelson? We want answers Ozzie!
Raiders might be committing to a gap scheme run game with 2-3 TEs + FB.
In other words, might be building around that expensive OL.
Jordy Nelson is a very, very good run blocker as well. https://t.co/LXraRCgTmL
La combinación Derek Carr - Jordy Nelson dará mucho de que hablar.
Se va Michael Crabtree pero llega la leyenda de @packers a @RAIDERS
Falta el receptor Slot, ala cerrada y corredor de 3er down.
The #raiders signed former #rams TE Derek Carrier to help QB Derek Carr and company to get some Touchdowns. Fans are dissapointed as the #FreeAgent signed was not former #packers WR Jordy Nelson. Should Jordy have been signed first? Will he? Stay tuned for more NFL FA News

Who's saying Raiders not active in Free agency! Low risk High Reward players and signing some of our own guys back!
Dear @RAIDERS please take care of my boy Jordy Nelson...he’s a good man and a good WR, he’ll get to the end zone faster then you could blink. Don’t do him dirty like the packers.
A packers fan but also a @JordyRNelson fan #IllNeverLetGo #JordyNelson87 😭😭
