Oakland Raiders Cut Jordy Nelson After Paying Him $3 Million

Cabinda-Green-main-031519

He finished the season ranked third on the team with 63 receptions and second with 739 yards receiving, adding three touchdown receptions. According to Ian Rapoport, he was paid $3 million before getting cut loose.

The departure of Nelson comes after the organization gave him a $3.6 million roster bonus in December.

McCarron's $1.9 million base salary would have been guaranteed on Sunday, though a $3 million roster bonus would have been guaranteed on Friday. In the final five games in which he played, however, he reeled in 38 passes for 386 yards.


Nelson signed a two-year, $14.2-million deal with the Raiders last offseason following 10 seasons with the Green Bay Packers. "We've enjoyed our time out here so far, enjoyed being with the team and starting the rebuilding process and being a part of that".

The only other quarterback employed by the Raiders is Nathan Peterman, who's signed to a reserve/future contract.

McCarron will free up $5 million off the cap, as the Raiders will look for someone else to backup Derek Carr in 2019. With the agreement in place and the Raiders set to return to Oakland, the league can move forward with planning all 32 teams' schedules.
