Summary

Jimmy Graham's decision to sign with the Packers in free agency was a good one for both he and the Packers. Green Bay found the answer to their tight end woes after swinging and missing on Martellus Bennett last year, giving them a threat at the position they haven't had since Jermichael Finley retired. Graham gets to catch passes from Aaron Rodgers and operate in single coverage on a team that is filled with talent at the skill positions. Graham caught 57 passes for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns last season in Seattle, and played 16 games for the second consecutive season, silencing the critics who thought he was done after suffering a devastating knee injury in 2015. The Packers will use Graham in creative ways, lining him on the end of the line, in the slot as well as on the outside in the red zone where he can use his size and athleticism to win in the short field. He will make his living in the red zone, and has a great opportunity to catch 10+ touchdowns again this season. The days of him catching 85+ passes are most likely over, but given how shallow the tight end position is these days, he remains a top five option with the ceiling to challenge guys like Zach Ertz and Evan Engram.

Latest News

Packers | Short touchdown for Jimmy Graham (Thu Aug 16, 10:35 PM) - Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham caught one pass, an eight-yard touchdown, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Our View: Aaron Rodgers put the ball above the rim where only Graham could get it and was patient allowing Graham's route to develop. It looks like this connection will be in effect in the red zone and give Graham 8-10 touchdowns in a mean outcome with the possibility for more.

Packers | Jimmy Graham bothered by knee (Wed Aug 8, 02:27 AM) - Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, due to a knee injury. Although it's considered minor, Graham is unlikely to play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 9.

Our View: With Graham's history of a catastrophic knee injury, even something minor bears watching. As long as he plays later in the preseason, we shouldn't be worried about this.

Packers | Jimmy Graham, Randall Cobb miss practice (Tue Aug 7, 01:30 PM) - Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, affer getting tangled up with Josh Jones in coverage Monday, Aug. 6. WR Randall Cobb (undisclosed) also was not spotted among the receiver group.

Our View: Graham is at that more fragile part of his career after having serious knee surgery in 2015. Cobb can't seem to stay on the field for more than a few days. We'll be monitoring both situations.
