General manager Reggie McKenzie and the Oakland Raiders made some changes to the roster on Thursday, mainly to the wide receiver position.
McKenzie is reportedly cutting ties with receiver Michael Crabtree, who spent the last three seasons with the Raiders. His last year in the Silver & Black was his worst, catching just 58 passes for 618 yards and eight touchdowns.
Instead, the Raiders elected to sign former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who was released just 48 hours ago.
Former Packers and Raiders receiver James Jones broke the news.

Nelson is coming off a season worse than Crabtree, hauling in just 53 receptions for 482 yards and six touchdowns.
Raiders franchise quarterback Derek Carr now has Nelson, Amari Cooper, Cordarrelle Patterson, Seth Roberts and newly-signed Griff Whalen for receivers.
