Report Jimmy Graham expected to sign with Saints or Packers

The Graham signing was one of the bigger pieces of news during Tuesday's free agency action, with Drew Brees having re-signed in New Orleans and many believing it would result in a reunion with Graham in the Bayou.

Nelson's release figures to foreshadow more moves for the Packers, who could use an upgrade at tight end.

Does this mean the Packers will dive into every free agent opportunity that comes their way, with deals like Kirk Cousins' $28 million/year guaranteed with the Vikings? His yards per catch was 9.1 in 2017 and he managed just 53 receptions and 483 yards in 15 games, which was much lower than previous years.

The Green Bay Packers are releasing receiver Jordy Nelson. He was scheduled to count over a little over $12.5 million on the Packers' cap in 2018.

With Graham, the Packers will try to replicate what they got from the tight end position in 2016, when Jared Cook played such an enormous role in the "run-the-table" winning streak that turned the Packers from a 4-6 team to one that lost in the NFC Championship Game.

Changes are coming to Aaron Rodgers' arsenal of pass catchers.

Muslims in Sri Lanka are generally known as Moors are the minority ethnic group comprising 9.3% of the country's total population. Last week, at least 5 people were wounded and several shops and a mosque damaged when groups clashed in Ampara.

Nelson has been a fixture on the team for the last 11 years on and off the field. Nelson tore his ACL in the 2015 season but bounced back in the 2016 season with 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The Packers reached out to Wilkerson right away after his release became official last week, but Wilkerson took visits to three other teams before choosing the Packers.

According to multiple reports, Graham will receive a three-year deal.

First-year general manager Brian Gutekunst called Nelson "one of the great Packers who played here". "He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success".

Graham's three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks were a mixed bag.

Jordy Nelson and his wife, Emily have two sons, Royal and Brooks, and an adopted daughter, Adda Jo.
