Raiders release former Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson

Raiders release former Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson

- Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority commissioners voted unanimously on Friday to approve a lease agreement that will keep the Raiders football team playing at the Coliseum for at least one more year.

Nelson's place on the 2019 roster appeared to be assured after the Raiders pushed forward his bonus in December. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden originally said the receiver would return to the team. "If you watched Jordy play carefully the last four weeks when he's been healthy, you see what he's capable of doing".

Meanwhile, the Raiders add another receiver after already acquiring Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams in the past week.

Miami Dolphins Trade Ryan Tannehill To Tennessee Titans
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been traded to the Tennessee Titans in a deal that also involves draft picks. Ryan Tannehill's days in Miami were numbered when the season ended and today they ended for good.

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

The Green Bay Packers released Nelson and he joined the Raiders on a two-year deal before the 2018 campaign.

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. He was targeted just 19 times - also a career low - of which he made seven catches to account for all 64 of his yards and no touchdowns. McCarron was competing with Nathan Peterman, Buffalo's backup in 2017, and Josh Allen, the seventh player picked in April's draft, to become Buffalo's starting quarterback.
