Jimmy Graham to sign with Packers, who also release Jordy Nelson

Jimmy Graham to sign with Packers, who also release Jordy Nelson
jimmy-graham-to-sign-with-packers-who-also-release-jordy-nelson


 the Green Bay Packers are signing arguably the best tight end on the free-agent market. Only this time,For the second time in as many years,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/nate-sudfeld-jersey-cheap]Womens Nate Sudfeld Jersey[/url], they’ll be hoping it turns out better than the last.

 according to a person familiar with the deal,The Packers reached a verbal agreement with tight end Jimmy Graham on Tuesday,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/matt-jones-jersey-cheap]Authentic Matt Jones Jersey[/url], and plan to sign him when free agency opens Wednesday afternoon. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

The Packers also released veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson, saving the team more than $10 million in cap space.

 31, new general manager Brian Gutekunst matched word with action after an offseason in which he vowed to be more aggressive in the player acquisition phase. The Packers have reportedly expressed interest in several top-dollar free agents — cornerback Richard Sherman,By signing Graham, defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Allen Robinson — but to this point had either been priced out of the competition or slow played the market.

 former general manager Ted Thompson signed Martellus Bennett to a three-year deal worth $21 million. The decision backfired in more ways than one, with Bennett underachieving on the field (24 receptions, 244 yards,This marks the second consecutive offseason the Packers have made a splash at the tight end position. A year ago, zero touchdowns) and walking with his entire signing bonus after the Packers tried to recoup the prorated portion ($4.2 million) through an arbitrator.

 a player whose basketball background helped revolutionize the position alongside the likes of Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates and Julius Thomas. Graham has had at least 850 receiving yards five times in the last seven years and has reached double-digit touchdowns four times in his career,But in Graham the Packers are signing one of the best receiving tight ends in the modern era, peaking with 16 receiving touchdowns in 2013 as a member of the New Orleans Saints.

 2015. There were times when Graham seemed like an odd fit for the power-running, quarterback-scrambling offense of former coordinator Darrell Bevell. At other times Graham was his typical jaw-dropping self, especially in the red zone where his 6-foot-7, who acquired him via trade March 10,Graham joins the Packers after three uneven seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, 265-pound frame is nearly impossible for any defender to cover. 

 Nelson in 2017 endured the worst season of his career since becoming a significant contributor in 2010. Nelson had 53 catches for 482 yards (9.1) and just six TDs after leading the NFL with 14 TD catches in 2016, when he also had 97 receptions for 1,Meanwhile,257 yards (13.0).

 who turns 33 in May,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/su_a-cravens-jersey-cheap]Authentic Su'a Cravens Jersey[/url],Nelson, failed to top 100 yards in any game and had three or fewer catches eight times. Nelson struggled to gain separation from cornerbacks and finished 153rd in yards after the catch with 2.5 per reception.

" Gutekunst said in a statement. "He has been an exemplary professional and teammate and greatly contributed to our success. Jordy will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Packers Hall of Fame. We wish Jordy, his wife Emily,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/kendall-fuller-jersey-cheap]Authentic Kendall Fuller Jersey[/url],"We cannot thank Jordy enough for all that he has given the Green Bay Packers and our community for the past 10 years, and the rest of their family all the best."

 if you're reading this you know that,This just in-the Redskins need a nose tackle. Of course,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/nate-sudfeld-jersey-cheap]Authentic Nate Sudfeld Jersey[/url], and you've known it has been the case ever since the Redskins went to the 3-4 defense in 2010.

 they need to slow the run,In very closely related news,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/brandon-scherff-jersey-cheap]Womens Brandon Scherff Jersey[/url], too. You probably noticed that they were dead last in the league in rushing defense last year. And that the NFC East has two very strong rushing teams in the Eagles and Cowboys and a Giants team that could well take Saquon Barkley with the second pick in the draft. If they don't fix their rushing defense they could literally get run over.

Payne could help them a lot. He can take on double and triple teams and clog up running lanes in the middle. If they try to go around him, he has the quickness to penetrate and disrupt outside runs.

 Payne has the potential to do that. He'll never be a double-digit sack guy, but if he can kick in four to six per year and get some pressure up the middle,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/preston-smith-jersey-cheap]Authentic Preston Smith Jersey[/url],And a defensive lineman taken in the top half of the first round should be able to provide some pass rush pressure. As noted by Zierlein, that would be fine.

 Payne can't get much in the way of a pass rush when he is double and triple teamed. But when they tried to block him one on one he consistently got pressure. Payne didn't get many sacks, but he did make a difference. Against Georgia,Like most players, one pressure resulted in an interception and another forced a third-down incompletion.

 even when the offense tries to do it with two or even three players. Running backs did not get by him on a regular basis. In the second half in particular, Georgia tried to move the ball with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel,Payne is very difficult to move off the spot in the running game, both of whom are likely to get selected in the top 100 in the draft next month. But they kept running into a mass of humanity in the middle of the line with Payne in the middle of it.

He played well during the Tennessee game during the regular season, but he didn't have a lot of impact. The only time his name was called was when he was hit with a roughing the passer call.

 Payne may not be the ideal size to fill the chronic hole at nose tackle. It should be noted, however, that defensive line coach Jim Tomsula has said that the Redskins aren't necessarily looking for the 350-pound nose tackle and that a relatively smaller player can get the job done. Ziggy Hood played the nose at 305 pounds last year. The Redskins finished last against the run,Potential issues: At 311 pounds, although that's not necessarily cause and effect.

Bottom line: The Redskins went 20 years without taking an interior defensive lineman in the first round before taking Jonathan Allen last year. Nobody could legitimately complain if they doubled up on first-round D-linemen after so many years of neglect.

Payne should be there when the 13th pick goes on the clock. Unless the Redskins address the nose tackle spot in free agency Payne will be under strong consideration. The defensive line improved last year with the additions of Allen in the draft, Stacy McGee as a free agent and the second-year emergence of Matt Ioannidis. Payne could be the final piece of what could be a dominant defensive line.

 who will be released by the Dolphins tomorrow. He is more a final piece of the puzzle type of player rather than a building block that the Redskins are looking for. Although they are hosting a similar player n Muhammad Wilkerson at Redskins Park today,I don't think that the Redskins will be interested in Ndamukong Suh, it should be noted that Suh is three years older and he will likely cost significantly more.

 they will pursue Sheldon Richardson,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/josh-doctson-jersey-cheap]Womens Josh Doctson Jersey[/url], a former Jets teammate of Wilkerson's who played with the Seahawks last year, and former Chief and Falcon Dontari Poe. You also can't rule out interest in ex-Eagle Bennie Logan,-The word is that the Redskins are going hard after the top tier of defensive linemen. If they don't land Wilkerson,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/su_a-cravens-jersey-cheap]Womens Su'a Cravens Jersey[/url], who was a target of the Redskins last year. The good thing about the additions of Suh and Wilkerson to the market is that increases the supply of big men and simple economics says that such a dynamic will push down prices.

 the second-highest in team history among kickers with at least 50 attempts. And he can consistently boom kickoffs through the end zone,-I know that a lot of fans are lukewarm on bringing back Dustin Hopkins; the memories of the missed chip shot in London still burn. But the misses shouldn't blind you to the fact that he has hit 83.9 percent of his field goals in three seasons in Washington,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/preston-smith-jersey-cheap]Womens Preston Smith Jersey[/url], a hidden benefit on a team with shaky special teams.

-Yesterday I said that a second-round restricted free agent tender and the accompanying $2.9 million salary would be very expensive for a backup like Ty Nsekhe. [url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/brandon-scherff-jersey-cheap]Authentic Brandon Scherff Jersey[/url],But the Redskins went ahead and gave Nsekhe that tender anyway. It makes me think that they might be strongly considering having him start at left guard. He played there some last year and Gruden said that moving him there for 2018 was a possibility. [url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/kendall-fuller-jersey-cheap]Womens Kendall Fuller Jersey[/url],So maybe they believe they are getting a starter for their money. Even if he's a backup I don't have a big problem with the tender as they did what they had to do to keep a player they think they had to keep. It's not an overpay that's going to do any long-term damage to the cap structure.

-The news that WR Allen Robinson will not be joining the Redskins is not at all surprising. Although he was on their radar he was very much on the fringes of it; there always seemed to be another half dozen teams lined up ahead of Washington in the pecking order. The early numbers on the contract show an average annual value of $14 million but we'll have to shake out what it really looks like when we get the details.
