It seemed that once head coach Jon Gruden got his hands on wideout Jordy Nelson that he wasn’t going to let him go. After reports of other teams making a strong push to sign the former Pro Bowl wideout, the Oakland Raiders locked him in to a two-year deal.
According to multiple reports, the Raiders and Nelson have agreed to a two-year deal worth $15 million with $13 million of it guaranteed.
And the best part about it, is his old teammate broke the deal:

Also as expected, the Raiders released wideout Michael Crabtree as a result to the signing of Nelson.
