Graham's contract will reportedly be for three years, but the dollar amount is still unknown.

The move will preserve over $10 million in cap space for the Packers. His release saves Green Bay more than $10.2 million.

Graham joins an offense that consists of receivers Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and running back Ty Montgomery in addition to Rodgers.

Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Seattle free agent tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to either re-sign with the New Orleans Saints or head to the Green Bay Packers in a free agent deal.

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

In 2016, Nelson was phenomenal during his comeback season after missing the entire 2015 campaign. He has caught at least nine touchdowns in five of the last seven seasons.

The Packers' transition from Ted Thompson to Brian Gutekunst has brought about a change in philosophy. Tuesday's moves would seem to affirm that approach. Nelson was selected to the Pro Bowl and named second-team All-Pro by The Associated Press for his performance during the 2014 season in which he set career highs in receptions (98) and receiving yards (franchise-record 1,519) while also hauling in 13 touchdowns. The Packers signed Martellus Bennett last offseason, but the team released him midseason saying he failed to disclose a previous injury.
