Jimmy Graham caught an eight-yard touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.
Matched up against first-rounder Terrell Edmunds in the end zone, Graham reaved his soul before skying for a jump-ball score. Graham scored 10 touchdowns for the Seahawks last season but watched his yards per catch plummet from 14.2 to 9.1 as he posted his lowest-yardage total (520) since his rookie season. That latter number is going to have to come up if Graham is to live up to his ADP. Aug 16 - 10:58 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) isn't expected to play in the Packers' preseason opener.

Graham was held out of Wednesday's practice. It would be surprising if he plays in a meaningless game at less than 100 percent. The Packers aren't going to take any chances with Graham's history of knee issues.
Aug 8 - 6:22 PM

Packers News' Aaron Nagler expects Jimmy Graham to get a majority of his snaps on the outside this season.

Graham spent some time split wide in Seattle and could do more of it in Green Bay. With Marcedes Lewis and Lance Kendricks behind him, he isn't going to be asked to do much in-line blocking. Graham wasn't great outside of the red-zone last year, but he has a higher yardage ceiling in an Aaron Rodgers offense.

Packers signed TE Jimmy Graham, formerly of the Seahawks, to a three-year contract.

Graham appeared headed for a reunion with the Saints, but the sides couldn't figure out the financials. Graham is coming off his first double-digit touchdown campaign since 2014 but saw his yards per catch crater from 14.2 to 9.1 last season. The drop off came even as Graham was another year removed from his devastating knee injury. Now 31, he required frequent maintenance days in Seattle. Despite his advancing age and seeming loss of a step, Graham is an intriguing pairing with a quarterback who at one point coaxed an eight-score season out of Richard Rodgers.
Mar 13 - 4:15 PM

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports talks between the Saints and free agent Jimmy Graham have "stalled."

Per Russini, both sides remain hopeful of getting a deal done. The Packers reportedly maintain interest. Graham should be signing on someone's dotted line by Wednesday evening.
Mar 13 - 2:09 PM's Mike Garofolo reports the Packers have "reached out" to free agent Jimmy Graham.

New GM Brian Gutekunst has signaled he will be much more active in free agency than Ted Thompson. The Packers had a huge hole at tight end last season after Martellus Bennett didn't work out. Graham remains a touchdown-scoring force but didn't offer much after the catch in 2017.
Mar 12 - 1:23 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints have "strong interest" in free agent Jimmy Graham.

Rapoport's colleague Tom Pelissero had a similar report a couple weeks ago. New Orleans still owes Coby Fleener some guaranteed money, but it does not look like that will stop them from going hard after the position this offseason. The Ravens are another potential fit.
Mar 12 - 12:31 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Seahawks and free agent Jimmy Graham are expected to "part ways."

Per Pelissero, the Saints are interested in a reunion. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has previously claimed he would "love" to re-sign Graham, but the 31-year-old tight end probably wouldn't fit in the team's 2018 budget. Graham could also be looking to move on after inconsistent usage in the Pacific Northwest. Graham is the top tight end available.
Mar 5 - 1:59 PM

ESPN's Jamison Hensley considers the Ravens a potential fit for free agent Jimmy Graham.

Baltimore was forced to rely on a 37-year-old Ben Watson last season, so Graham would be an upgrade to an offense that ranked near the bottom of the league in passing. With Watson a free agent and considering retirement, the Ravens make sense as a landing spot given their lack of a supporting cast for Joe Flacco. Graham's big play ability dropped off in 2017 (9.1 YPC), but he remained one of the best red-zone threats in the league.

Feb 10 - 2:30 PM

Speaking at his season-ending press conference, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he would "love" to re-sign impending free agent Jimmy Graham.

Carroll said that's been communicated to Graham. Graham's usage has often been baffling in Seattle, but he's coming off his first 10-touchdown season since 2014. Now 31, Graham did see his yards per catch slip to an ugly 9.12, however. The Seattle Times has reported Graham is unlikely to remain in Seattle.
Jan 2 - 2:53 PM

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta passes along word that impending free agent Jimmy Graham is "generally considered really unlikely" to re-sign with the Seahawks.

Graham is 31 and headed toward free agency for the first time in his career. He scored 10 touchdowns this season, but Graham's usage has long been odd since being acquired from the Saints a few years ago. Graham and Russell Wilson are extremely good friends, which could help Seattle keep Graham -- if they even want to -- but he surely is going to test the market. Perhaps a return to the Saints could work out if New Orleans cuts its losses with Coby Fleener.
Jan 1 - 9:39 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-6 targets for 45 yards in the Seahawks' Week 17 loss to the Cardinals.

It was something of a revival for the 31-year-old tight end, who entered Week 17 with just three catches for two yards over his past three games. He was held out of the end zone for the third time in four games, but finishes 2017 with 10 scores, his most since 2014. Graham has become a catch-and-fall receiver — he averaged a woeful 9.12 yards per catch this season — but remains nearly impossible to cover near the goal line. He is headed for free agency.

Jimmy Graham (knee) isn't listed on the Week 17 injury report.

Graham's practice reps have been managed all year, but he's rarely listed on the final injury report. Playing in a must-win game, Graham is a touchdown-dependent TE1 against the Cardinals.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 05:30:00 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

This is Graham's routine. He will be out there as a high-floor, low-ceiling TE1 against the Cardinals.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 07:27:00 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

We'd chalk it up to a maintenance day. There's no concern about Graham's status for Week 17. He's tied for second in the league with 10 touchdowns but has caught just two passes for two yards over his last three games.
