Jimmy Graham agrees to three-year deal with Green Bay Packers

Jimmy Graham agrees to three-year deal with Green Bay Packers

A few years later, the offense in Seattle is still working to get off the ground, but Graham is landing in perhaps the best place he's ever played.

The Packers have a huge hole at tight end last season after Martellus Bennett didn't work out.

The team is in need of a pass-catching tight end while Graham had his greatest success as a player with Drew Brees as his quarterback.

Graham, who has spent his career with the Saints and Seahawks, is coming off a season that saw him catch 10 touchdowns, all of which came inside the red zone. The 2017 season was the first time since Graham was traded to the Seahawks in 2015 that he's been healthy enough to play in all 16 games.

UNITED fans were left shocked when Marcus Rashford was substituted, instead wishing it was Alexis Sanchez. His two goals against Juergen Klopp's side took his league tally to six.

It's been thought for a while now that Graham would not be back in Seattle and it's not thought Graham gave much consideration to staying or that Seattle made a real aggressive effort to make him stay. Graham is expected to sign a three-year deal. But he didn't catch another TD the rest of his first season and had just one 100-yard-plus receiving game (140 against Carolina) before his season ended in week 11 when he suffered a patella tendon injury against the Steelers.

Graham finished the 2017 season with the second-most receptions from Russell Wilson, racking up 520 yards on 57 targets.

He's a five-time Pro Bowler and has led National Football League tight ends in touchdown receptions.
