Former Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham headed to Green Bay

Former Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham headed to Green Bay

Graham will officially become a free agent on Wednesday at 3 p.m. CT.

Jimmy Graham was Russell Wilson's go-to target in the red zone last season.

After some injuries, he is reportedly healthy.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, was quick to point out a new era in Green Bay has begun with their interest in Graham.

A five-time Pro Bowler, Graham picked Aaron Rodgers and the Packers over a reunion with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.

We could find out the victor of the Grahamstakes later this week.

Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments
According to 101 Great Goals , Frank said to BT Sport: "It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho". It's never a good idea to get into a war for words with Jose Mourinho .

Packers intend to sign TE Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal, sources tell ESPN.

Seattle acquired Graham for center Max Unger and a first-round pick on March 10, 2015 (also getting a fourth-round pick in return), roughly a month after the shocking end to Super Bowl XLIX, a game that the team felt highlighted what had been one of its more glaring issues that season - scoring in the red zone (the Seahawks ranked 20th in scoring touchdowns when in the red zone in 2014 at 51.52 percent, despite leading the National Football League in rushing that season, something that also played into the ill-fated decision to pass from the 1-yard line against the Patriots in the first place).

Graham caught 57 for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017.

The Packers now have their third new veteran tight end in as many years. That's what Green Bay hoped it would get a year ago when it added Martellus Bennett on a three-year deal.

Last season he didn't record double-digit receptions in a single game. He saw significantly less playing time than Graham or Willson, but still doubled his production from his rookie season to finish with 12 catches for 124 yards and one touchdown.

The Packers have lacked a playmaking tight end since Jermichael Finley and it is certainly a need, but looking at the current landscape of the NFC North, improving their defense should come way before overpaying a veteran tight end.
