The Packers are dumping wide receiving Jordy Nelson and picking up tight end Jimmy Graham, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport

It's a three-year deal for Graham and a trip to free agency for Nelson, whom is already receiving interest from the Seahawks, Patriots, 49ers and Cowboys, per Rapoport. 

Nelson missed the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL and bounced back with an NFL leading 14 touchdowns in 2016, but he finished 2017 with just 53 receptions for 482 yards and 6 touchdowns. 

Nelson is 32 years old so he might be slowing down, but he did play most of last season without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which likely ate into his production.  

Either way, Packers fans are pissed.
