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.
