Jordy Nelson Feels Hurt By Packers

We all knew it was coming. The release of receiver Jordy Nelson by the Green Bay Packers.

That didn’t make it great or, if you want to scorch earth, fuck the Green Bay Packers. Ultimately, the move saved the Packers around $10 million in cap space. They then turned that into tight end Jimmy Graham. We can debate who has more left if you like, but Jordy went for 482 yards, last year. Graham went for 520.

So what?

Where is the new Jordy Nelson?

Jimmy Graham is the new Jordy Nelson. Unless Fat Mike is a bigger gravy head than we all already think, then he will split Graham out wide.

He’s a matchup problem.

Fast. Tall. Big.

Will run a safety’s ass over. Will run by a linebacker.

But that doesn’t mitigate the sting of losing Jordy Nelson, does it? Nelson says he was somewhat stunned by his release. We also know that the Packers wanted him back, but that they low-balled him.

And no dice. This low-balling shit — maybe we should call it Russ-balling it, fuck let’s give that thrifty motherfucker a promotion! — is getting old.

“I think the hurt part was, to be honest, was the unwillingness to try to make it work,” Nelson said. “But then again, it’s a business, and they have to do what they think is best. What they need to do is to be able to move forward and prepare for the future of the Packers. But I think that was just part of it, but that’s the way it is. I’m definitely not the only one that’s been cut or released when you don’t think it’s going to happen, and it’s not what you want to hear when you go into a meeting with them. But we’ve moved on.”

Man, a brutal situation for all involved.

Except Russ Ball, who is just a stone-cold assassin.

Hell, I negotiated this shitty contract several years ago and guess what? Now I’ve decided not to honor it. Jokes on you!

A beloved player released. He didn’t want to take a pay cut of the substantial nature that the Packers were proposing, and we don’t blame the guy. He got $7 million per season from the Raiders. The Packers wanted him to play for veteran minimum salary. I’d call bullshit too.

    “I think the hurt part was, to be honest, was the unwillingness to try to make it work.”

    Packer people, respect, loyalty…. Hogwash. I don’t like this situation one bit. The fact that Cobb is overpaid and doesn’t produce nearly as much as Nelson. The fact that Nelsons production was stellar until Hundley came into the picture. The disregard for the presence he brought to the field, locker room, and the community. Even despite their decision, the Packers could have told Jordy they were going in another direction instead of offering him a slap in the face contract that they knew he wouldn’t take. And if he did take it, it would have been bullshit given the other unworthy contracts this team gives out. Jordy was bent over and got the Russ “Ball-Shaft.”

    I told you guys its a business. No one gives a shit. Everybody fucks over everybody at some point when it comes to money. It always ends bad. Jordy is a godly man, he should be grateful for all the money he made in GB.

      I think a lot of people give a shit.

        Nobody gives a shit except Total TMZ Packers and the chumps who live here. Grow up, chump!

          Lol….I’ll grow up when you put your big boy pants on and post under your usual name, coward.

    I didn’t see it coming, but maybe i’m just a lil slow.

    I never thought…hey, lets dump the guy who is a td scoring machine with Rodgers, lets dump the guy who led the league in td’s in 16. Lets dump the guy who scored 20 tds in his last 21 games with Rodgers.

    Then lets keep the guy who’s production has been spiraling south ever since he got his cash three years ago. Lets keep the guy who has a grand total 14 tds the last 3 seasons. (Jordy missed a season, and still had this clown beat in td’s, easily)

    I admit it, i didn’t see it coming, nor did Nelson apparently.

    Russ Ball…”It’s his age” Then sign Jimmy Graham who is just as old and Tramon Williams who is older.
    Russ Ball…”It’s his production” They better cut Hundley then, and Cobb, because Hundley sucked last year and Cobb has sucked since he signed his extension.
    Russ Ball…”It’s the salary cap” Bullshit Mr. Cap Genius…find a way to pay him something not insulting, everyone knows it could have been done.
    I hope Jordy goes for 1500 and 15TDs.
