Oakland is Jordy Nelson’s first stop. But it may not be his last. The free agent wide receiver has wisely not put all his eggs in one basket with his visit with the Raiders today. He has scheduled visits to Seattle and New Orleans after that according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

None of this is set in stone, however. The Raiders could make Nelson an offer he can’t refuse, and he could simply cancel the rest of his trip plans and sign on with the Raiders.
What the Raiders have that those other teams don’t is Nelson’s former wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator in house.
