Wide receiver Jordy Nelson is set to visit with the Raiders on Wednesday and the former Packer has other visits lined up in the event he leaves Oakland without a deal.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Seahawks and Saints have also scheduled visits with Nelson.

The Seahawks are expected to lose Paul Richardson when free agency opens as he’s reportedly agreed to terms with the Redskins. Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett are the top returning receivers in Seattle.

The Saints don’t have impending departures from their receiver group, but are likely trying to see if Nelson is the right choice to flesh out a group fronted by Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.

    As a Packers fan, I would much rather see Jordy go to the Saints than the Seahags.

    Dunno what the Pack was thinking here. You got AR coming of an injury and you would think they’d keep Jordy to give AR some comfortableness and regain some confidence.

  2. As a seahawks fan i would much rather see Nelson go anywhere other than Seattle, unless it is a 1 year vet minimum deal.

  3. Not sure why a team would trade a WR that has a telepathic connection with the franchise QB for a TE that will wear the questionable tag all 16 weeks, not block, and has lost a step or two after the torn patellar tendon. Peculiar moves.

  4. Now that they don’t have to absolutely force looks for Jimmy Graham to keep him happy, Wilson can go back to finding open guys, no matter who they are. He already made a star out of Baldwin, and gave Kearse a big boost, two UFAs. Bringing Jordy in is just due dilligence. They’ll make do with whomever wins the jobs in camp.

  5. Why would you cut Nelson instead of Cobb? Cobb is done and isn’t he making around the same as Nelson?

    Forget the $$$.. look at the production.

    Nelson is TWICE the receiver Cobb ever was or will be.

    Cobb is a slot guy. Nothing more.

    At his best, Nelson could carry an offense. He was hands down the best receiver of the Rodgers-era. Considerably better than Greg Jennings. Arguably better than Sterling Sharpe, although most would give Sharpe the nod, with the record breaking seasons he posted.

  6. Can you imagine if the Saints add Jordy nelson to a WR stable that already has Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr? Throw him into the mix, and with Drew Brees throwing to those guys, and with the “Boom and Zoom” combo of Ingram and Kamara running the rock, the Saints just about automatically become the leading contender to represent the NFC in SB53. Who Dat?!

  7. One day Jordy will proudly enter the Packer Hall of Fame, and will always enjoy the status of his World Championship legacy.

    The question in Green Bay is about which group of players will be the next to step and deliver the inevitable – a NFL record 14th World Championship.

  8. Wonderful person on top of being a great player. But he can’t separate and can’t beat anyone downfield. He’s good on change-direction plays on which both he and Rodgers were exemplary. But it’s not sustainable.

    Good luck Jordy.
