Oakland Raiders replace Jordy Nelson with J.J. Nelson

Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders are looking like they will be taking some big shots downfield next season.

On Friday, the team brought in former Arizona Cardinals speedster J.J. Nelson to add to their wide receiver group, adding another lightning fast wideout. Nelson joins a brand new wide receiver unit in Oakland, headed by Antonio Brown, who happens to be one of the best at his position in NFL history.

For Nelson, this gives him a chance to be a legitimate No. 3 wide receiver for the Silver and Black behind both Brown, and Tyrell Williams.
