National Football League free agency rumors: Packers releasing Jordy Nelson, signing Jimmy Graham

Jimmy Graham will sign with the Packers according to a report

Another big name National Football League player has found a new home today as free agent tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Green Bay Packers.

Gutekunst also didn't rule out releasing other veteran players to create cap room, although he did suggest that wide receiver Randall Cobb is safe, calling saying Cobb "is one of our good players, and we expect him to be". Jordy will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame.

To some surprise, he is instead signing with the Green Bay Packers, according to multiple reports Tuesday afternoon.

An NFL scout said after Tuesday's moves that, at this point, he would pick Graham over Nelson.

Aaron Rodgers will be scanning the field for a very different receiving corps for the Green Bay Packers this fall.

Graham was expected to return to the New Orleans Saints but the two sides were unable to agree to terms. Schefter said that Nelson intends to play next season somewhere. His 69 touchdown catches rank only second to Rob Gronkowski for tight ends during that span. The Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers have operated best with a receiving tight end, dating to Jermichael Finley and including Cook.

Now 32-years-old, Nelson was slated to earn $9.25 million in base salary for 2018, and with bonuses and prorated money would have counted $12.52 million against the cap.

The New England Patriots have lost a number of key free agents so far this offseason, but help could be on the way. While he was one of the more popular Packers in recent memory, he is coming off a down year that only saw him accumulate 53 receptions, 482 yards and six touchdowns. Wilkerson's new deal is reportedly for one year and $5 million, after his days with the Jets became numbered just two years into a five-year, $86 million contract he signed in 2016.

Nelson would go on to have a stellar career with the Packers, including three seasons with double-digit touchdown receptions - 15 in 2011, 13 in 2014 and 14 in 2016 - which was his bounce-back season after suffering an ACL injury in 2015.
