Patriots Interested In Free-Agent Receiver Jordy Nelson

Nelson was released last week after a one-year stint with the Oakland Raiders.

The Patriots' interest makes sense, as Nelson is a proven, productive receiver at the National Football League level.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots are among the teams interested in free agent Jordy Nelson. So Nelson was cut last Thursday, before his 2019 locked in, and he's looking for a new home.

The 33-year-old was semi-productive in his first and only year in Oakland, finishing with 63 receptions for 739 yards and three touchdowns.

The market appears to be strong for Jordy Nelson, although the Green Bay Packers are now not one of the teams interested in the 33-year-old receiver. Oakland is clearly interested at a cheaper price, but given the competition, Nelson might be able to squeeze a bit more money out of the market than expected.

As for Nelson's fit in K.C., the Chiefs have lost Chris Conley to the Jacksonville Jaguars already this offseason and the team could use some depth as they look to repeat last year's strong offensive success.

The Seahawks have Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett as their starting wideouts, but the third receiver position could potentially be a battle between Nelson, David Moore and Jaron Brown.

He spent the other nine seasons of his career in Green Bay, racking up 550 receptions for 7,848 yards with 69 touchdowns.
