Why they shouldn't sign Jimmy Graham — Packers free agency

Why they shouldn't sign Jimmy Graham — Packers free agency

Last year, the Packers believed they had their answer at tight end in Martellus Bennett.

Graham was one of the Saints' best offensive weapons during his tenure in New Orleans, but it took the Seahawks two years to figure out how to take advantage of Graham's skill set as a dominant red zone threat.

It's been thought for a while now that Graham would not be back in Seattle and it's not thought Graham gave much consideration to staying or that Seattle made a real aggressive effort to make him stay. Graham can still play, but he isn't getting any younger and will turn 32-years-old in November. It was the fourth time the veteran scored double-digit touchdowns and the first time since 2014. The Seahawks decided not to retain Graham this year, so he's due to become a free agent on Wednesday at 3 p.m., which is when his deal with the Packers can become official. Nonetheless, Graham leaves Seattle holding the single-season franchise records by a tight end in receptions (65), yards (923), and touchdowns (10). He caught 57 passes for 520 yards - the second and third worst totals of his career, respectively.

The Ravens ranked in the bottom 10 of the National Football League in touchdown passes during the 2017 season.

They caught just a combined 43 receptions for 689 yards and just one touchdown between them - the lowest productivity level for tight ends in the passing game since 2004.
