When Jimmy Graham was traded from the New Orleans Saints to the Seattle Seahawks, many were excited to see what the Pro Bowl tight end could do with Russell Wilson. While his tenure with Seattle got off to a rough start and an injury derailed part of one season, he finished off strong making the Pro Bowl each of the last two seasons including a 10 touchdown campaign in 2017. A top-flight tight end hit the open market this offseason and the Green Bay Packers wasted little time to get him to their team.
The Packers have reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with Graham, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Jimmy Graham has been named to the Pro Bowl five times in his eight year career and an All-Pro once in 2013. He has also crossed the 1,000 receiving yards threshold twice in his career. Graham started his career with Drew Brees, went to Russell Wilson and now will catch passes from Aaron Rodgers. Pretty solid lineup so far for Graham.
Graham immediately shoots up the list as the top tight end Rodgers has played with. He’s had some talented guys at that position like Martellus Bennett, Jared Cook and Jermichael Finley but Graham is on a different level.
