Brian Gutekunst on Jordy Nelson in a statement:
"He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success. Jordy will always be a member of the #Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame"
This is a crazy stat on Jordy Nelson's 10 seasons with #Packers:
Posted 1,250-plus receiving yards and 13-plus TD catches in the same season 3 times in his career (2011, 2014, 2016), the 4th most in NFL history behind Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens
According to an #NFL source, the #Packers did offer Jordy Nelson the opportunity to come back at a significantly lower salary than he was slated to make. Not sure what the number was, but was told it wasn't for a lot more than the 10-year veteran minimum.
To me, no one has better personified the ideals of the #Packers organization & the Green Bay community in general over the past decade than @JordyRNelson.
Whether he plays somewhere else or not, he’ll be a Cheesehead forever. #ThankYouJordy🧀
On the same day they agree on a 3-year contract with Jimmy Graham, the #Packers have released Jordy Nelson, source said. Not a surprise. They were looking for ways to clear cap space. (@AdamSchefter on it first)
I giggle when people say Jimmy Graham has “lost a step.” 1. #Seahawks didn’t use him effectively. 2. He’s finally healthy. 3. He just had his first 10+ TD season since 2014. 4. He’s exactly the red-zone threat #Packers need.
Washington defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake has seen four of his DB’s drafted by NFL teams — three in 2017.
One of those players, CB Kevin King, said Lake “over taught” the details that led to him being drafted by the #Packers last April.

Definitely liked the #Packers bringing in Jimmy Graham and Mo Wilkerson but it really stings knowing they came at Jordy Nelson’s expense. Jordy was a true example of what a Packer’s player should be on and off the field #GoPackGo

As if #ITFC getting dicked by Ull & Jordy being released by the #Packers wasn't bad enough, now I'm wide awake at 2am with my internal jukebox playing number one fan by #floandjoan from that sodding #Nationwide ad on auto repeat 😱😨😱😵
