Kansas City Chiefs show interest in Jordy Nelson

The market appears to be strong for Jordy Nelson, although the Green Bay Packers are now not one of the teams interested in the 33-year-old receiver.

Last week, the Oakland Raiders released veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson after just one year on the West Coast.

Nelson spent 10 years with the Green Bay Packers before getting released by the team a little over a year ago.

With the move, Nelson would join newly acquired slot receiver Adam Humphries, Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor, Tajae Sharpe, Cameron Batson and Darius Jennings on the depth chart. He's third in team history in catches, fifth in receiving yards and second in receiving touchdowns.

Seattle might not be Nelson's only stop on his tour to find a new team, as other clubs have expressed interest in the seasoned veteran, including the Patriots, Titans and Chiefs.

In his lone season by the bay, Nelson proved he could still produce despite playing for a bad football team, as he caught 63 passes for 739 yards and scored three touchdowns. This likely could be even better with a better quarterback.

Perhaps the biggest hurdles standing in the way of a Nelson-to-New-England transaction are economics and the Seahawks. He is among the best receivers available in free agency.

Los Angeles may not need Nelson's services, but this doesn't necessarily mean he won't become an issue if Seattle turns out to be a potential landing spot, and they have to face him twice in 2019.

Nelson would add some depth to a thin wide receiver depth chart which now includes Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Maurice Harris, Bruce Ellington, Braxton Berrios and Damoun Patterson.
