March 13th, 2018

In recent years, Green Bay Packers fans have largely been spectators during free agency, as former general manager Ted Thompson believed in sticking with home-grown players. In the span of a few minutes on Tuesday afternoon came news of two moves for the Packers: according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the team is releasing receiver Jordy Nelson but expected to sign free-agent tight end Jimmy Graham. On his way out: the Green Bay Packers will reportedly cut wide receiver Jordy Nelson.
