Raiders release Nelson after 1 season

The Raiders have released Jordy Nelson after one year in Oakland, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 33-year-old wideout had 63 receptions for 739 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games last season.

After looking for a temporary home before the franchise's move to Las Vegas, Raiders owner Mark Davis agreed with East Bay officials on a deal on Friday to bring his team back to the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum for the 2019 National Football League season.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri could shuffle his pack as the Blues eye a place in the Europa League quarter-finals. Chelsea's 8-0 aggregate win over Kiev means they are now in the hat for Friday's quarter-final draw.


Nelson's 64 yards from scrimmage past year were a career-low for him after he had 299, 568 and 508 in his first three seasons, respectively.

McKibben said if the new stadium in Las Vegas isn't ready by fall 2020 and the Raiders need to play in Oakland for a second additional season the rent will increase to $10.5 million.

So the politicians they know what to change they're just not doing it". "And we will continue to do so for as long as it takes". We are facing a disaster of unspoken sufferings for enormous amounts of people. "Now is the time to speak clearly".


Nelson's $3 million salary would've become guaranteed on Friday, and there was a $500,000 roster bonus, so they saved some cash and $3.5 million in salary-cap space. He appeared in two games and completed 1-of-3 passes for eight yards.

McCarron served as Derek Carr's backup during the 2018 season.

The Raiders also announced the release of quarterback AJ McCarron. Jon Gruden loves fast receivers, and now he has three of them, though J.J.is by far the fastest of the bunch, as his 4.28 40 back in 2015 is still the fifth-best mark in Combine history.
