Report Jimmy Graham expected to sign with Saints or Packers

Heading into free agency, we had Graham ranked as the second-best tight end available. Graham is expected to sign a three-year deal.

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo says, however, Green Bay wants Graham to be a Packer. It was the fourth time the veteran scored double-digit touchdowns and the first time since 2014.

The other tight ends on the Green Bay roster-Lance Kendricks, Richard Rodgers and Emanuel Byrd-combined for 32 receptions last season. But otherwise the season was something of a washout as he had just 57 catches for 520 yards - a career-low average of 9.1 per reception - and was tied for second in the National Football League in drops with seven.

Jimmy Graham was Russell Wilson's go-to target in the red zone last season. Green Bay hit on Jared Cook in 2016 but missed badly on Martellus Bennett in 2017.

Philip Hammond hints at an NHS cash boost in the Autumn Budget
The Office for Budget Responsibility has revised its economic growth forecast for 2018 to 1.5% from a previous estimate of 1.4%. His speech was repeatedly interrupted with loud jeers from the Conservative benches, which he dismissed as "Tory bully boys".

Garafolo noted on Tuesday that the Saints, who are also interested in bringing Graham back to New Orleans, are "reluctant" to pay him up to $10 million per year.

They've got some big questions at the tight end position. But he didn't catch another TD the rest of his first season and had just one 100-yard-plus receiving game (140 against Carolina) before his season ended in week 11 when he suffered a patella tendon injury against the Steelers.

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.
