Days after releasing wideout Jordy Nelson, the Packers legend has found a new home.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Nelson is expected to sign a deal with the Oakland Raiders. According to the report, Nelson is in Oakland and they’re trying to finalize the deal by the end of Thursday.

If the Raiders do complete the deal and sign Nelson then it’s very likely that the Raiders will cut wideout Michael Crabtree. If Crabtree is cut look for the Dallas Cowboys or Houston Texans to be options as a Texas team is his desired destination.
Sources: If Michael Crabtree is cut by the Raiders, Crabtree would prefer to play for a team in Texas. Which would make the Cowboys and Texans both potential options.
