Aaron Rodgers Still Seems Aggravated About Losing Jordy Nelson

Aaron Rodgers is preparing to play his first NFL season without Jordy Nelson and after two months of time to adjust, Rodgers still isn’t over losing his go-to receiver.

On Tuesday, Rodgers was asked about rumors that the Packers might sign free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant.

His answer was a good one – and included a slight jab at the decision makers in Green Bay.

“Well, we like young receivers so I’m assuming that’s the way they’re going to keep going,” Rodgers said Tuesday on the idea of adding Bryant. “I don’t know why you’d cut Jordy and bring in Dez, but he’s a talented player. He’s going to end up somewhere. If he ends up here, we’d obviously welcome him with open arms.”

Meanwhile in Oakland, the latest story involving Nelson is that the veteran wide receiver is already running the Raiders’ wide receivers room.

“I wasn’t sure about [the Jordy Nelson] signing,” NFL Network’s Peter Schrager said last week. “Thirty-three year-old Jordy Nelson, what did we get here? And then I talked to people in Oakland and they’re saying ‘this dude is unbelievable.’”

“Forget just the fact that he might be the best route runner in the entire NFL right now. The fact that he walked in and basically running the wide receivers room before OTAs even start, they think that Amari Cooper could be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, not because of Cooper’s own skill set, but because Jordy Nelson is basically a quarterback in the wide receivers room…”
