Jordy Nelson is leaving Green Bay for the Oakland Raiders, but says Northeast Wisconsin will always be a part of his family's life.
In a tweet Friday, Nelson thanked Packers fans for their support during his time in the city.
Packers Fans, my family and I would like to say THANK YOU for your support over the last 10 yrs. We have been blessed to call Green Bay our home and WI will always be a part of our lives. We have many great memories and it’s the people we will miss the most. Until next time...... pic.twitter.com/JnLnkEPspH

Nelson, 32, averaged a career-worst 9.1 yards per catch with only six touchdowns last season with Aaron Rodgers missing nine-plus games. The Packers released him earlier this week after agreeing to terms with tight end Jimmy Graham .
In nine seasons in Green Bay, Nelson made 550 catches for 7,848 yards and 69 touchdowns.
