Graham had something of an up-and-down season for the Seahawks in 2017.

He says that Graham is the top available free agent at the position and could be in the middle of a "bidding war". Graham is expected to sign a three-year deal.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, was quick to point out a new era in Green Bay has begun with their interest in Graham.

The Packers have always been on the hunt for a tight end to add a new dynamic to the team's offense.

While his 520 receiving yards were his fewest since his rookie season, he also had 10 touchdowns to rank second in the National Football League behind DeAndre Hopkins.

The 31-year-old only had 605 yards and two touchdowns in his first season in Seattle before ending the year on injured reserve with a ruptured patellar tendon. That's what Green Bay hoped it would get a year ago when it added Martellus Bennett on a three-year deal. They should be focused on paying for future production, not past production.

As Ralph Mancini pointed out in his post, Graham has been inconsistent. Kendricks caught just 18 passes for 203 yards. Now he'll see what he can do in Green Bay.

According to several reports, Kirk Cousins is set to join the Minnesota Vikings and if the Packers stay put defensively, they will be playing for second place. Currently, Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoops are the only tight ends under contract for the Seahawks.
