Green Bay Packers releasing franchise great WR Jordy Nelson

The decision to cut Nelson creates $10.2 million in cap space for the Packers and leaves just $2.3 million in dead money.

They caught just a combined 43 receptions for 689 yards and just one touchdown between them - the lowest productivity level for tight ends in the passing game since 2004. First, they are signing tight end Jimmy Graham, but that's not all! The specifics of the contract have not been disclosed, and the move can not become official until Wednesday afternoon and the start of the new league year.

The move came minutes after the reported three-year signing of Graham, who has spent the last three years in Seattle. The club also acquired QB Deshone Kizer from the Cleveland Browns in a trade last week. Over his eight year National Football League career, Graham has tallied 556 receptions for 6,800 yards and 69 touchdowns. Well, that's where 10-year Packers wideout Jordy Nelson comes in.

The Packers, of course, didn't make the playoffs last season. Following the Packers' release of Jordy Nelson on Tuesday, the 31-year-old tight end could compete to be third in the pecking order, behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. His best year was 2013 when he caught 86 receptions for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns. Nelson is the only player in team annals to record three seasons with 13-plus touchdown receptions (2011, 2014, 2016).
