TE Jimmy Graham expected to sign 3-year deal with Packers

A five-time Pro Bowler, Graham picked Aaron Rodgers and the Packers over a reunion with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. 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 received virtually no production from their tight ends last season.

Graham was one of the Saints' best offensive weapons during his tenure in New Orleans, but it took the Seahawks two years to figure out how to take advantage of Graham's skill set as a dominant red zone threat. Graham has four seasons with double-digit receiving touchdowns.

Woods, Els to captain Australia Presidents Cup
The Presidents Cup has not had a playing captain since Hale Irwin went 2-1 for the Americans in a 20-12 US victory in 1994. Woods has been named by Jim Furyk as a 2018 USA Ryder Cup vice-captain along with Stricker and Davis Love 111.


Schefter reports the Packers will sign Graham to a three-year deal. But he also hauled in 10 touchdown passes for the first time since 2014. Graham can still play, but he isn't getting any younger and will turn 32-years-old in November.

But Graham would have just one more 100-yard game the rest of his Seahawks career - an eight-catch, 103-yard, two-TD game in a Monday night win against Buffalo in week eight.

Graham finished the 2017 season with the second-most receptions from Russell Wilson, racking up 520 yards on 57 targets. Receiver Paul Richardson is expected to sign with Washington when the new league year begins Wednesday.
