Raiders release Jordy Nelson

Keeping Roberts over Jordy makes ZERO sense. Nelson will always be more productive than him no matter where he is on depth chart. Already paying him, just keep him.

No wayyyy we keep Roberts. He's outta here soon.

Well I didn't see this coming. Already paid him half of his salary and was due less than Seth. I don't want to argue, but I'm in the he's clearly better than Seth group.

His 38 catches for 386 yards in the last five games were almost as much as Seth had all year. Doesn't add up unless he's done.

I still expect Roberts to be cut too. I thought Jordy was going to be able to man the slot, but eh, I'm not going to worry about losing him at this point.

Pretty surprised by this move and though his money was too much I'd still have kept him if possible as a locker room leader and as I'm hoping we add at least one WR quite high in the draft and maybe one in the mid rounds I'd think a professional vet like Nelson would be exactly what you need in the WR room to help the young guys. 

I can see with signing Williams, a signing I don't particularly like, why we couldn't keep Nelson at his current $$$ but maybe as was said earlier in the thread they are looking to bring him back on a reduced amount. That would be a good move IMO.
