    Jordy led the NFL in TD catches (with 14), the first time a white pass-catcher did so since Gronkowski in 2011 (17 TDs).

    Nelson was also 6th in receiving yards (1,257). Great season for #87!

    Jordy wins NFL CPOY just as I expected. The most amazing thing was I dont think he was even 100% all year especially after rib fracture.

    Still dumbfounding that he didn't get a pro bowl nod over BPPBs (black privilege pro bowlers) Fitzgerald, Bryant, and Baldwin.

    Jordy - 97 receptions, 1,257 yards, 14 TDs
    Fitzgerald - 107 receptions, 1,023 yards, 6 TDs
    Bryant - 50 receptions, 796 yards, 8 TDs
    Baldwin - 94 receptions, 1,128 yards, 7 TDs

    Fantastic season by Jordy after recovering from the ACL and suffering from other ailments in 2016. And we all saw how great the chemistry between him and Rodgers is - Rodgers completed 65.7% of his passes (up 5% on 2015) for 4,428 yards (up 600 yards) and 40 TDs (up 9) with 7 picks (down 1) and a passer rating of 104.2 (up 12)

    FTR Jordy played at Riley county HS one half hour from K State, you think those mopes could have sent someone out there to watch some of his games or that the boosters could have taken their lips of the blacks long enough to say we want this guy.

    Highlight video of Aaron Rodgers' long touchdown passes. Impressive how often Jordy appears.

    Chad Hansen is a wide receiver who was drafted by the Jets this year. Stylistically he compares to Jordy Nelson.

    If given a chance Hansen could do well in the NFL.

    Jordy Nelson, now 32, has apparently been abusing their black 33rd overall pick, CB Kevin King (a guy 10 years younger), during training camp...

    "In a 2-minute, 11-on-11 period that matched starters vs. starters, No. 1 wide receiver Jordy Nelson lined up wide left, with King across from him. Rodgers hit him three times during the drive — on an out for 9 yards, on a slant for 16 yards and on a back-shoulder throw for a 10-yard touchdown — en route to the end zone."

    Another article about King being "humbled" by Nelson/Rodgers during camp...

    Coming off another dazzling season and now 2 years removed from the knee injury that robbed him of his 2015 campaign, the most important white outside receiver in the last 30 years should be atop the league-leaders in receiving once again. He's projected to be a top-10 overall fantasy football pick in most PPR drafts behind Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, and AJ Green...

    Best of luck to this former NCAA walk-on from rural Kansas.

    What a relief!

    Saw a headline that said "Jordy Nelson adopts SA baby." I thought SA stood for "South African" and I was thinking "please be White, please be White, please be White."

    Turns out "SA" meant "San Antonio" and Jordy stopped by San Antonio when the Packers were in Texas to play the Cowboys to finalize the adoption of a White baby girl from Texas. Jordy and his wife, Emily, have one biological child but discovered they were unable to have more children, so they adopted one (White) child a while ago and now this is their second adoption.

    Congratulations to the Nelson family. What a refreshing change from all the celebrity airheads adopting black babies.

    Whew!

    Now I like Jordy even more. He and his wife are actually sane, unlike so many other virtue-signalling white people.

    Gruden has taken some heat for signing Jordy. Rod Woodson bitched that Michael Crabtree, released to make way for Jordy, is a better receiver than Nelson lol what a racist idiot. Gruden is taking heat in general for his remaking of the Oakland roster so far, most of it most likely based on the Raiders looking like they will no longer be the blackest team in NFL history though it's still too early to know how the depth chart and roster will look in September.

    Jon Gruden pinpoints several spots where Jordy Nelson's 'it' factor will help Raiders

    Scott Bair

    It doesn't matter that Nelson's nearly 33, coming off a disappointing statistical season by his standards. Expectations surrounding him remain high.

    Count head coach Jon Gruden among Nelson's biggest fans. Armed with intelligence from receivers coach Edgar Bennett – he worked with Nelson in Green Bay – and experience covering him as a broadcaster, Gruden has great confidence Nelson can positively impact the Raiders' on-field product and locker-room culture.

    "He can still run," Gruden said last week at the NFL owners meetings. "He's a guy we can put on the backside of (triple receiver formations). He can win at the line of scrimmage against press coverage. He's good after the catch.

    "He brings a lot of ‘it' factor we need. He's unselfish. He'll block. He's excellent at uncovering in scramble drills. His work ethic and consistency is something that will benefit our football team. He's one of the free agents who will play a huge role for us."

    Gruden has a point. Nelson had 60 percent of his receiving yards and all of his touchdowns in six games before Rodgers was lost with a broken collarbone.

    The Raiders believe Nelson will fit in well and enhance the team while essentially taking Crabtree's place (and paycheck) on the Raiders roster.

    "'Crab' was a good player, no doubt," Gruden said. "With a lot of receivers, sometimes a change of scenery is a good thing. I think Crab's in a good place. I think this is a good place for Nelson.
