Ravens trying to land Jimmy Graham

Ravens trying to land Jimmy Graham

The 2017 season was the first time since Graham was traded to the Seahawks in 2015 that he's been healthy enough to play in all 16 games.

He says that Graham is the top available free agent at the position and could be in the middle of a "bidding war".

Why did the Packers sign Jimmy Graham? .

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, was quick to point out a new era in Green Bay has begun with their interest in Graham. But he also hauled in 10 touchdown passes for the first time since 2014. He caught 57 passes for 520 yards - the second and third worst totals of his career, respectively.

Multiple Saints, including defensive end Cameron Jordan and running back Mark Ingram, used Twitter to recruit Graham back to New Orleans, but ultimately, the Packers made a better offer.

Jimmy Graham was Russell Wilson's go-to target in the red zone last season.

Graham's true value to the Seahawks past year was seen in the team-best 10 touchdowns he hauled in. That's what Green Bay hoped it would get a year ago when it added Martellus Bennett on a three-year deal.

As Ralph Mancini pointed out in his post, Graham has been inconsistent.

Graham caught 10 touchdowns in 2017 - leading the Seahawks and setting a team record for single-season TD receptions by a tight end.

Green Bay should focus on spending money on the defense and fill the tight end void via the draft.
