Oakland Raiders release AJ McCarron

The Christmas Eve 2018 Raiders game will not be the final time the team plays games at Oakland Alameda County Coliseum it turns out

With the Raiders in 2018, Nelson played a featured wide receiver position that perhaps he might not had with Green Bay after having approximately half the receptions and touchdowns he had in 2017 compared to 2016.

Just days after announcing the acquisition of top-3 WR Antonio Brown, the franchise announced on Thursday that they would be parting ways with Jordy Nelson.

The Raiders will pay $7.5 million for nine home games (they have a "home" game scheduled for London), along with $750,000 in parking arrears, for 2019. As NFL teams reduced their 90-player preseason rosters to the regular-season limit of 53 on September 1, Buffalo traded McCarron to Oakland for a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The Coliseum Authority and the Raiders had reached a tentative agreement for a new lease late previous year but it fell apart after the city filed a federal breach of contract lawsuit in December against the Raiders and the National Football League for the move to Las Vegas.

And with Wilder vs Fury 2 seemingly no longer on the table, Hearn believes we could see "AJ" lock horns with "The Bronze Bomber" by year's end.

Nelson is certainly a deep threat, as his 17.8 yards per catch average is the best mark in all of football.

McCarron served as Derek Carr's backup last season, playing in two games and throwing three passes.

He would have seen his base salary of $3 million for 2019 become fully guaranteed on Sunday, and he had a salary-cap number of more than $5.368 million.

There are several mid-round quarterback options in this year's draft that coach Jon Gruden is familiar with from the Senior Bowl, like North Carolina State's Ryan Finley, Washington State's Gardner Minshew II and Buffalo's Tyree Jackson.
