Raiders release WR Jordy Nelson

Yes, Jon Gruden gave Jordy Nelson a $3.6 million Christmas gift, but it's not as bad as it sounds

Yes, Jon Gruden gave Jordy Nelson a $3.6 million Christmas gift, but it's not as bad as it sounds

The NFL's social media team was very excited, too, as they photoshopped an image of Brown standing with Raiders QB Derek Carr and fellow Raiders WR Jordy Nelson with the caption "Welcome to #RaiderNation".

Scott McKibben, the authority's executive director, said that rent the Raiders pay to the authority will increase by $4 million this year, from $3.5 million to $7.5 million.

During his National Football League career, McCarron has completed 87-of-136 passes for 928 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions in 13 regular-season games. "If you watched Jordy play carefully the last four weeks when he's been healthy, you see what he's capable of doing".

The Packers drafted Nelson in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Kansas State.

Nelson, 33, was picked up by the Raiders last offseason after the Packers released him.

Cabinda, a 6-foot-1, 243-pound linebacker signed by the club as an undrafted free agent following the 2018 NFL Draft, spent the first six contests of 2018 on the team's practice squad before being elevated to the active roster on October 18.

After the acquisitions of wide receivers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams, Nelson seemingly became expendable. He has 613 catches for 8,587 yards and 72 touchdowns in his career. He appeared in two games and completed 1-of-3 passes for eight yards.

The only other quarterback employed by the Raiders is Nathan Peterman, who's signed to a reserve/future contract.
