Former Petrolia Pirate and Rider Raider standout David Nelson has a new NFL team today.
He signed a one-year deal with the receiver-thin New York Jets Wednesday.
After a standout career at Florida, Nelson was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Buffalo Bills and caught 94 passes for 1,042 yards in three seasons there.
But after a knee injury in Week 1 of 2012, he wasn't re-signed after the season.
He signed with the Cleveland Browns in the off-season but was one of the final cuts at the end of camp.
