Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb share tributes to Jordy Nelson

Jordy Nelson was released by the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday after 10 years with the team, and it’s safe to say his departure leaves a big hole.

Teammates Aaron Rodgers, who was Nelson’s quarterback their entire time together, shared a tribute to Nelson on Instagram:

“Hard to find the right words today to express what 87 means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a packer quite like him. From living in GB full time, his incredible contributions to the city, state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business. There will never be another quite like white lightning. #leader #brother #friend #baller #loyal #champion #legacy #intact #stillcanplayball #backshoulder #1stSBTD” Rodgers wrote.

Randall Cobb, who was drafted by the Packers in 2011 and formed a dynamic tandem at receiver along with Nelson, posted this message on Instagram:

“87- It has been a pleasure to line up next to you! You showed a 20 yr kid what it meant to be a pro. I can’t thank you enough for what you have meant to my career!

More importantly…
Jordy,
Thank you for being an example of what a good man, husband, & father looks like. I value the friendship that we created over the years! Thank you for standing by my side on one of the biggest days of my life! We’re family and always will be!
#EndOfAnEra #187” Cobb wrote.

During his career with the Packers, Nelson caught 550 passes for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns. He is reportedly set to visit with an interesting AFC team in free agency.
