  • Packers Sign Jimmy Graham To 3 Years $30 Million

    Packers will sign TE Jimmy Graham

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Green Bay Packers are adding tight end Jimmy Graham on a three-year deal, sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Graham has been one of the most prolific tight ends of his era, catching 69 touchdown passes since he entered the league with the New Orleans Saints as a third-round pick in 2010. That total ranks second among tight ends and third among all pass-catchers during that span, behind Rob Gronkowski (76) and Dez Bryant (73).

    Graham had 10 receiving touchdowns last season, most among tight ends and tied for second most leaguewide.

    Graham's three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks were a mixed bag. In 2017, he caught 10 touchdown passes -- all in the red zone -- and last season ranked tops among tight ends and tied for second among all pass-catchers for receiving scores.

    Outside of his touchdowns, however, Graham suffered a decline in his production. His 520 receiving yards represented a significant drop-off from 2016, when he had 923 receiving yards. And dropped passes were also an issue as Graham tied for the second-most in the NFL with seven in 2017, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
