Packers set to go after Watkins, Graham, Robinson

Packers set to go after Watkins, Graham, Robinson”

Nelson has been Aaron Rodgers's favorite target for virtually their entire careers with the Packers.

The two moves may have occurred independent of each other, but the Green Bay Packers' decision to sign tight end Jimmy Graham and cut receiver Jordy Nelson will forever be linked.

Graham had 57 catches for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, and 65 catches for 923 yards and six touchdowns in 2016.

Graham, 32, never quite hit it big with the Seattle Seahawks, but he lands in a good spot with Aaron Rodgers, who hasn't had a tight end flourish and stick with the team for very long in years. Teams can not officially sign players until Wednesday, March 14, but a big chunk of high profile free agents have already reached agreements with new teams.

The Packers' transition from Ted Thompson to Brian Gutekunst has brought about a change in philosophy.

The salary cap will decide a lot of that, and the Packers don't have a huge amount in their cap coffers for 2018 - just a little more than $15 million at this point, some of which has to go to drafted players.

"We can not thank Jordy enough for all that he has given the Green Bay Packers and our community for the past 10 years,"Gutekunst said in the statement".

With Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb on the decline, Gutekunst is intrigued by the marquee names available at wide receiver.

The Green Bay Packers are hard at work in free agency.

I've heard it a thousand times."It's a young man's game".

Packers tight ends combined for only two touchdown catches last season - tied for the fewest in the NFL. But it's that production the Packers are banking on with the signing. The Packers are still trying to recoup part of Bennett's $6.3 million signing bonus; they lost a grievance but have filed an appeal. Graham's true value to the Seahawks past year was seen in the team-best 10 touchdowns he hauled in. He caught four passes for 41 yards during his late-season call-up.
