Packers to release Jordy Nelson

That could change with a restructured contract for some of their veterans, including Aaron Rodgers.

Graham's three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks were a mixed bag. In 2016, Nelson notched 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The Seahawks backup tight end, Luke Willson, is also a free agent so the position could end up being a serious problem for the team.

Pioneering French designer Hubert de Givenchy dies at 91
Givenchy was one of the first big designers to use black models, and in 1986 used only black models for one collection. He went on to work with Robert Piguet and Lucien Lelong in 1946, and then for Elsa Schiaparelli between 1947 and 1951.

New GM Brian Gutekunst has signaled he will be much more active in free agency than Ted Thompson.

The Green Bay Packers approached receiver Jordy Nelson with a big pay cut and an opportunity to stay in Green Bay, but the salary slash was too severe and two sides parted ways Tuesday. In total, he has eclipsed 1,200 yards four times, and has three seasons of double-digit touchdowns.

According to Spotrac, the release clears $10.2 million in cap space for the Packers, which will certainly help in signing Graham.

Chettri said that moments after the plane received permission to land, the pilot said he wanted to go in a northern direction. Nepali authorities say the plane had an unusual landing while the airline says it was the air traffic control's fault.

During his time in Green Bay, Nelson developed a sixth sense on the field with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whether it was their back-shoulder passes, spectacular sideline connections or overall production on scramble drills. The Packers signed Martellus Bennett last offseason, but the team released him midseason saying he failed to disclose a previous injury.

"For me, it's a lot of teams out there who not only have interest in me, but who I have interest in", Robinson told Schein.

This one comes as a bit of a surprise, though the 32-year-old did look like he had lost a step last season. Graham's true value to the Seahawks past year was seen in the team-best 10 touchdowns he hauled in. He's a candidate to start at right guard if veteran Jahri Evans, the starter there last season, doesn't return or decides to retire. He caught 550 passes to rank third in franchise history.

The 32-year-old hit.265 with 14 homers and 49 RBIs last year for the Mets and Milwaukee, who acquired him August 12. It was announced this morning that the Yankees have agreed to a deal with free agent 2nd Baseman Neil Walker .

Wednesday marks the beginning of the National Football League calendar year when free agency commences and trades can be finalized.
