Aaron Rodgers Is Not Happy The Packers Released Jordy Nelson

Aaron Rodgers isn’t happy about losing Jordy Nelson.

A report on Tuesday detailed the frustration the Packers quarterback is feeling after the loss of his Pro Bowl wide receiver.

Via Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports:

“While the relationship between Rodgers and the Packers isn’t in total disrepair, two league sources familiar with the quarterback’s mindset described him as both ‘frustrated’ and ’emotional’ over a lack of communication from the front office prior to some significant decisions this offseason. Specifically, the sources said Rodgers has lingering discontent being completely cut out of discussions that resulted in the departures of Jordy Nelson and QBs coach Alex Van Pelt.”

Rodgers spoke earlier today about the move to release Nelson.

The Packers decision to cut Nelson was the combination of the wide receiver’s age (he’ll be 33 next month) and his $12.5 million cap number.

Nelson’s production, however, only seemed to dip once Rodgers was injured in week six.

Rodgers called Nelson one of his “closest friends” in the locker room, but the two were still very effective together on the field. In the five games before Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone, Nelson caught six touchdowns – but did not have another the entire season.
