The Green Bay Packers released Jordy Nelson earlier this month after he spent the first 10 years of his career with the team. There have been rumors that the team did not treat him well on his way out the door. It seems like those rumors were true. Nelson talked about his departure from the Packers and told ESPN Milwaukee that he was more bothered by the way the Packers went about releasing him than the actual decision.
“I think the hurt part was the unwillingness to try to make it work,” Nelson said, per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. “Then again, it’s a business and they have to do what they think is best.”
Nelson said he got the impression that Green Bay’s desire to move on from him was about more than just money. When asked if he is motivated to prove the Packers wrong, Nelson said he is looking at it a slightly different way.
“I take it the other way and try to prove the Raiders (his new team) right” – TO
Packers Fans, my family and I would like to say THANK YOU for your support over the last 10 yrs. We have been blessed to call Green Bay our home and WI will always be a part of our lives. We have many great memories and it’s the people we will miss the most. Until next time…… pic.twitter.com/JnLnkEPspH
