  • GREEN BAY WI – NOVEMBER 04 Julius Peppers

In one day, Rodgers lost one of his best friends on the team but gained what could be one of his biggest weapons for this season.

The Packers confirmed Nelson's release later Tuesday afternoon. Graham will likely approach $9 million per year, if not more. The 2014 Pro Bowler and 2016 National Football League leader in receiving touchdowns developed an uncanny rapport with Aaron Rodgers, who never shied away from throwing Nelson open on the boundaries using their patented back-shoulder telepathy. He was scheduled to count over a little over $12.5 million on the Packers' cap in 2018. Graham caught 10 touchdowns in 2017, the most of any tight end in the NFL.

Nelson, who recorded three straight seasons with at least 1,200 receiving yards from 2013-16, finished with just 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games.

- Evan Massey (@massey_evan) March 13, 2018I'm told the #Falcons and the #Packers, along with some other teams, have preliminary interest in #Panthers impending free agent TE Ed Dickson, per source. In 2016, Nelson caught 97 passes for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was traded to Seattle before the 2015 season for center Max Unger and a first-round pick that was used to select linebacker Stephone Anthony. "He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success".

The exact framework of the deal hasn't been released yet, but there was competition for Graham and he presumably got more than the $8 million per average that the Chicago Bears plan to give Trey Burton. "We wish Jordy, his wife Emily, and the rest of their family all the best".

The Saints are reportedly also interested in signing free agent cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and showing interest in defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson.
