Report: Packers intend to sign Jimmy Graham to 3-year deal
Joe Nicholson / USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers intend to sign tight end Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal, sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

This is the second year in a row that the Packers, who've typically been fickle in free agency, have added a big-name tight end. Green Bay signed Martellus Bennett last year but released him midseason.

Graham will be expected to play a big role with the Packers, especially after the team reportedly released longtime receiver Jordy Nelson on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old Graham was expected to receive interest from his former team, the New Orleans Saints, but has apparently opted to play with a different future Hall of Fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers.

The five-time Pro Bowler's production has dropped off since he suffered a torn patellar tendon in 2015, but Graham remains one of the toughest matchups among tight ends. Last year, he had his first season with a double-digit touchdown total since leaving the Saints, catching 57 passes for 520 yards and 10 scores.
