Raider Nation, let’s give a warm welcome to the newest member of the Oakland Raiders receiving corps, Jordy Nelson.
For an offense already loaded with weapons, the addition of Nelson will provide quarterback Derek Carr with yet another target in the Red Zone. The former Kansas State Wildcat made it clear that during his two-day visit with the Silver and Black that he’s eager to get to work with Carr and build chemistry. A lot of comparisons have been made between Carr and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but Nelson isn’t worried about making that comparison, he just wants to win.
“I’ve won a lot of football games in my career,” said Nelson in his sit down with Raiders.com. “And I’m looking forward to winning more.”
Personally, I can’t wait to see Nelson suit up, but until then, let’s take a look at his career by the numbers.
