Aaron Rodgers had a heartfelt message for his now former wide receiver, Jody Nelson on the day of his release from the team.

On Instagram, the Packers quarterback wrote: 

"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."

Nelson was released Tuesday after 10 seasons with the team. The Packers also signed tight end Jimmy Graham and DT Muhammad WilkersonTuesday.
