The Green Bay Packers are expected to release wide receiver Jordy Nelson, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Graham spent the past three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, totaling 2,048 yards and 18 touchdowns over that period of time. Nelson was selected to the Pro Bowl and named second-team All-Pro by The Associated Press for his performance during the 2014 season in which he set career highs in receptions (98) and receiving yards (franchise-record 1,519) while also hauling in 13 touchdowns.

Graham was ranked No. 21 on NFL.com's Top 101 Free Agents of 2018.

It's the first major roster cut by new general manager Brian Gutekunst, who replaced Ted Thompson in January. By cutting Nelson, the Packers save more than $10 million in cap space. If anything, the Packers could re-sign Nelson as soon as tomorrow on a lower-paying deal if he really wants to stay in Green Bay. The NFL Network reported the Packers' interest in Watkins and Robinson, although acquiring one of them most likely would mean parting ways with one or both of veteran wide receivers Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb.

The Green Bay Packers are hard at work in free agency. Graham remains a touchdown-scoring force but didn't offer much after the catch in 2017. The Pro Bowler and superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers formed one of the most dynamic duos in the National Football League, regularly leading their prolific offense to the postseason while winning Super Bowl XLV.

During lighter intensity late this morning, the snow will mix with rain in some areas closer to Interstate 95. The National Weather Service has also issued a coastal flood advisory from 2 a.m.to 6 a.m.

"I don't think at this time (but) you never say never", Gutekunst said. But it's that production the Packers are banking on with the signing.

The exact framework of the deal hasn't been released yet, but there was competition for Graham and he presumably got more than the $8 million per average that the Chicago Bears plan to give Trey Burton.

This one comes as a bit of a surprise, though the 32-year-old did look like he had lost a step last season.

Last season Nelson's numbers dipped.
