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. 

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.
