Raiders Cut A.J. McCarron, Jordy Nelson

Life came at Jordy Nelson pretty fast after NFL tweeted

With the flurry of roster moves that included signing Antonio Brown, the Raiders have released Jordy Nelson, the team announced Thursday.

Nelson was the Raiders' No. 1 wide receiver at the end of last season, and the team paid him a $3.6 million bonus late in 2018.

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

Arizona Cardinals' J.J. Nelson (14) runs during the second half of an NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts, Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017, in Indianapolis.

In a tweet , the first minister said that Muslims are a "valued part of our diverse and multicultural society". The death toll has now reached 49, and the shootings left at least 20 people seriously injured.

Nelson's 64 yards from scrimmage previous year were a career-low for him after he had 299, 568 and 508 in his first three seasons, respectively. He spent his first nine seasons in the league with the franchise. In addition to Nelson, veteran wideout Seth Roberts also could be shown the door by the Raiders, who are in full rebuild mode when it comes to the roster.

McCarron served as Derek Carr's backup last season, playing in two games and throwing three passes.

When the Raiders signed Tyrell Williams to a four-year deal, part of the appeal was that he doesn't need to a lot of targets to be successful.
