  • Raiders Sign Jordy Nelson To 2 Years $15 Million

    Raiders add WR Jordy Nelson

    ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders have given their offense a new look, agreeing to a contract with wide receiver Jordy Nelson, sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Nelson will get a two-year, $15 million deal, a source tells Schefter, including $13 million guaranteed.

    Nelson spent 10 seasons in Green Bay. He and quarterback Aaron Rodgers hold the Packers record for most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver duo with 65.

    Last season, he saw his production drop after Rodgers broke his collarbone. To that point, he had six touchdowns in the first five games of the season, but he didn't catch another one. He was released Wednesday.

    Nelson finished the season with 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns.

    Just one season before, he was the NFL's comeback player of the year when he caught 97 passes for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns. He had missed the 2015 season because of a torn ACL.
