The Oakland Raiders made a freaky roster decision with Jordy Nelson.

But the 33-year-old struggled to replicate his Packer form in Oakland, even after the Raiders shipped out Amari Cooper midway through the campaign. Now just days later the Raiders have released veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

For those who are, of course, thinking the Packers could bring Nelson back, it's not out of the question - but it may need to be at a discounted cost compared to his previous Green Bay contract when he made $8.25 million in 2017.

Nelson wasn't an ideal complement to newcomers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams (think quick slot type), so just add that $3.6 million to that $52.1 million guaranteed.

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.
