The Green Bay Packers were quick to reach out to tight end Jimmy Graham when the legal free agent tampering period opened on Monday.
They must have seen the billboard.
It appears the Packers actually have a shot of landing Graham too.
League source: Jimmy Graham expected to sign with either Saints, in a reunion, or the Packers. Either way, long gone from #Seahawks. Too expensive for SEA.

Before you get too excited, Graham played his first five seasons in New Orleans. We’ve long heard the Saints are the frontrunner for his services.
If the Packers were able to sign Graham, he’d give them a big upgrade at the position. Currently, only Lance Kendricks and Emanuel Byrd are on the roster. In 2017, Graham caught 57 passes for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’s twice had 1,000-yard seasons.
At 6-7, 265 Graham is a huge target and he can move. That’s something coach Mike McCarthy has been blathering on for years about.
Players can’t officially sign until Wednesday, but they can negotiate their deals now.
