Jordy Nelson has signed a 2-yr deal with the Oakland Raiders for a reported $15M, of which $13M is guaranteed.

Nelson will be re-united in Oakland with former Packers wide receivers coach, Edgar Bennett, who joined the Raiders' coaching staff earlier this year.

                    If the story is true, Jordy will get more than what his full salary would have been with the Pack this season. No way the Packers could compete with that contract, unless they had outright cut Cobb and just kept Jordy.  Hard to say if the Packers can 'replace' Jordy and all he brought to the team or not. Certainly with A. Rodgers back at starting QB will make a HUGE difference and all players are replaceable. I think Jordy was a guy who brought more to the team than what he did on the playing field - tough to find guys like that. Wouldnt be surprised to see Jordy have a great season and wouldnt be surprised if he didnt live up to the $13million guaranteed money either. Pack will be able to go on without Jordy, but would have been a better offense with Jordy back. Some things just don't work out. So many big money guys are getting released this year. Some will be bargains, some will be overpaid, and some will get injured. Almost pure luck with older guys late in their big contracts. Cutting the big money guys(or guys do to get huge contracts) has worked pretty well for the Pats.
