    Steelers' David Nelson: Released by Steelers

    Nelson was released by the Steelers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. The veteran wideout finished the season on IR and did not play a single snap for the Steelers prior to his release. It's unclear at this point if a team will take a flier on the oft-injured Nelson given that he's played in all of 18 games over the past three seasons, but his 6-foot-5 frame could be intriguing enough for a team to give him a shot in training camp.

    Every Jets receiver struggles Week 5

    The Jets receivers had an incredibly hard time putting anything together Week 5. Offensively, the Jets were a mess in the passing game. Geno Smith was benched after an awful half, and Michael Vick wasn't much better. Both players combined for just 60 passing yards. The biggest performance in the passing game was by Jeremy Kerley. Kerley gained 24 yards on three receptions. He led the team in receiving yards. Jace Amaro finished second, gaining 19 yards on three catches. Both Jeff Cumberland and Greg Salas hauled in two passes for 12 yards. David Nelson had one reception for 9 yards. The group will hope for more Week 6 against the Broncos.
