Report: Nelson targeting Patriots after Packers release, will visit Raiders

After 10 years with Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback, free-agent wide receiver Jordy Nelson may have another all-time great throwing passes his way in 2018.

Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports reports the receiver knew the Green Bay Packers would release him and had already targeted the New England Patriots as his next team.

Green Bay cut ties with the veteran wideout Tuesday, and playing with Tom Brady could be too tempting to pass up.

New England lost Danny Amendola to the Dolphins earlier in the day, so the team could be looking to fill the void at receiver.

Schultz also reports the Raiders, Ravens, 49ers, and Seahawks are also expected to have interest in the 33-year-old. In fact, Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken reports Nelson will visit Oakland on Wednesday.

Nelson caught 53 passes for 482 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games with the Packers in 2017.

Joe Thomas pushes for own annual holiday in Cleveland
I’d like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into America’s birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree
Gronk angling to play for the '69ers'
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots
