Oakland Raiders replace Jordy Nelson with J.J. Nelson

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

Life came at Jordy Nelson pretty fast after NFL tweeted a photo of the WR with Antonio Brown

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. Jon Gruden loves fast receivers, and now he has three of them, though J.J.is by far the fastest of the bunch, as his 4.28 40 back in 2015 is still the fifth-best mark in Combine history.

The Oakland Raiders made a freaky roster decision with Jordy Nelson. He caught 63 passes for 739 yards and three touchdowns over 15 games in his only season with the Raiders.

"Normally, when you hand out a bonus for next year's season, there's a pretty good chance those guys are coming back", Gruden said December 28.

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

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

Nelson, 26, played each of his first four National Football League seasons in Arizona after the Cardinals drafted him in the fifth round (159th overall) in 2015. He was a Pro Bowl selection and second-team All-Pro choice in 2014. 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. He spent last season with the team and was active for all 16 contests.
