Report: Packers sign TE Jimmy Graham

A report says the Green Bay Packers have signed a new tight end.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network says that former Seahawks and Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has signed with the Packers after two days of reports that they had agreed to the deal.

Adam Schefter of ESPN gave the initial report that it's a three-year contract.

Graham caught 57 receptions for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017. 

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.

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.
