Report: Jordy Nelson targeting Patriots

Jordy Nelson had Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback. Could he have Tom Brady as his next quarterback?

Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports reports that the receiver knew the Packers were releasing him and already had the Patriots targeted for his next team. The Raiders, Ravens, 49ers and Seahawks also are expected to have interest in Nelson, Schultz adds.

The Patriots lost Danny Amendola, who agreed to terms with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Nelson made 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games with the Packers last season. He had a $12.5 million cap hit.

  1. No insult to Jordy (or Pats) as I’d like to see how he’d do with Brady, but he’d have to take a big pay cut to go to NE and something tells me one of those other teams would offer notably more.

    What else do you want?!

  3. As fun as it would be, it doesn’t make sense in Minnesota.
    Good luck Jordy wherever you go. New England would be lucky to have him.

    For 4-5 years always seemed to get him in the draft, and he always delivered.

  4. Smart move on his part, and I hope this happens. He’s a real football player. Belichick loves guys like this.

    Dorsett and Britt are expendable and may not make it out of camp. Hardly reasons to stand in the way of adding a quality wideout like Nelson

  10. It’s a good fit. Doesn’t tie up $ long term. Gronk at TE with Cooks, Edelman & Nelson? Can’t double team Gronk, Cooks & Nelson. Edelman will be open underneath all day. If they defend it you Cooks going long and Nelson & Gronl. White & maybe (Burkhead or Gillislee) in the backfield. Healthy they will outscore anyone and they can use the draft to focus on defense and OL.

  11. “What else do you want?!

    Well the deceptive speed is sadly gone. Both before and after the catch. Jordy ended up with a truly dismal YAC in 2017. He still has the route running and body control to make plays, but he truly looked done last year in GB. I wish him well and hope he ends up in a great situation, but it was time to move on.

  12. Total nonsense. The Pats just released Amandola, a proven clutch performer, to make cap space. Why would they pay Nelson more money for the same over saturated position?

    Talk to us after you’ve lifted 5. Until then, you still aren’t in the same conversation as the Patriots.
