Raiders release Nelson after 1 season

Yes, Jon Gruden gave Jordy Nelson a $3.6 million Christmas gift, but it's not as bad as it sounds

According to Ian Rapoport, he was paid $3 million before getting cut loose.

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. He's averaged a whopping 10.2 yards per target throughout his career.

Nelson, 33, was picked up by the Raiders last offseason after the Packers released him. "We've enjoyed our time out here so far, enjoyed being with the team and starting the rebuilding process and being a part of that". In addition to Nelson, veteran wideout Seth Roberts also could be shown the door by the Raiders, who are in full rebuild mode when it comes to the roster.

James lifts Lakers in win over Bulls
The Lakers' season may be headed to an unfortunate end but it hasn't stopped LeBron James from putting on a show. The same can be said of their opponent tonight, as they are on the road against the Chicago Bulls .

McCarron spent the 2018 season with the club and was active for all 16 contests, appearing in two and completing one-of-three pass attempts for eight yards.

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. With the agreement in place and the Raiders set to return to Oakland, the league can move forward with planning all 32 teams' schedules.
