​We were all shocked when the Packers cut loose Jordy Nelson on Tuesday afternoon as just the latest cap casualty in Green Bay.

Nelson is 33 years old, and while past his prime, still believe he has some good football ahead of him. Unsurprisingly, Nelson's market is big if he's engaged and committed, which appears to be the case. While several teams, such as New England, have been connected to Nelson's services for obvious reasons, the two teams out in front might surprise you.

The Hawks make a lot of sense here, as they're in position to compete in the NFC, and would give Nelson a chance to get back at Green Bay for cutting him in the first place. Baltimore, on the other hand, would serve as a fresh start for a wideout who played his entire career in Green Bay.

The Ravens have made incremental additions to their receiving corps just far, but a big splash like Nelson could have a profound impact on Joe Flacco's success.

​​Certainly something to watch for as free agency progresses.
