Jordy Nelson, one of the cornerstones of the Green Bay Packers offense for a decade, is retiring from the NFL after enjoying year to the Oakland Raiders.

“we would like to congratulate Jordy on an extraordinary career that included achievements that will bring about his eventual induction at the Packers Hall of Fame,” said Packers GM Brian Gutekunst. “He is one of the greatest receivers in franchise history and played a very important role within the team’s success with not his play on the industry but also for what he provided since a excellent teammate and pioneer. We wish the very best to Jordy, his wife, Emily, and the remainder of their loved ones.”

Nelson, who turns 34 on May 31, became a free agent once the Raiders released him on March 14 after only 1 season with the team.

James Jones, his former Packers team mate, first reported Nelson’s decision.
