The big question now is, could there could be a reunion between the Packers and Nelson in the future?
"Hard to find the right words today to express what 87 means to me", Rodgers wrote on Instagram.
Also, on Tuesday, the Packers committed to eventually signing defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson, who visited with the team last week. That's a team that may need Nelson more than the Patriots. Maybe that had something to do with Nelson's numbers, maybe it didn't, but if the Packers are looking for another veteran player for cheap and with a chip on his shoulder, Matthews is the guy.

"I don't think it has any correlation to that", Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said after the Packers released Nelson.

Vieira, who has been the head coach of New York City FC since 2016, says he "adores" Wenger, whose future is the subject of increasing speculation.
Nelson, who was slated to count $12.5 million against the Packers' salary cap, reportedly wasn't willing to take a pay cut. The Timber Rattlers will make an announcement on the game at a later date. It would be the easiest transition for Nelson, as he'd go from Rodgers throwing him the ball to Tom Brady.
