Packers have reached out to Jimmy Graham

Wide receiver Jordy Nelson

The Packers need to find an upgrade at tight end this offseason, and general manager Brian Gutekunst might believe Jimmy Graham is the answer. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that there is "strong interest" from the Saints to bring Graham back to New Orleans. He may be 31 years of age, but Graham still has the ability to make a big impact on a game.

Graham, 31, caught 57 passes for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns with the Seattle Seahawks previous year, showcasing his ability to be a force in the red zone.

Green Bay missed the postseason previous year, largely because Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone, and Brett Hundley was bad. It wouldn't be a surprise if he found similar success with Aaron Rodgers.

Finally, a number of enterprise-grade features are planned, including consultative transfer, call delegation, and federation. The latest enhancements break down along the lines of features and functionality, calling, and device support , Wright said.

The tight end position with the Packers has been one of a lack of productivity, particularly in 2017 with the combination of Martellus Bennett, Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers. Both Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb could be released sooner rather than later, both creating cap space and allowing for multiple additions to be made.

Graham would provide the Packers with a playmaking threat at tight end. Graham has two great teams to choose from, while other teams will likely try to work their way into consideration.

Green Bay certainly makes sense for him, and Gutekunst is making it clear that the Packers are a team to keep an eye on in free agency this offseason.
