Packers to sign TE Jimmy Graham, cut veteran WR Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers are releasing WR Jordy Nelson. "We wish Jordy, his wife Emily, and the rest of their family all the best".

If you are a Patriots fan who has played fantasy football in the past eight years, the idea of pairing Rob Gronkowski with Graham as tight ends on the Patriots had to be tempting.

"I think Jordy is a really good player, and you certainly don't want to let him walk out the door", Gutekunst said.

Graham was the highest-paid tight end in the league, and that likely won't change this season.

Nelson and Rodgers hold the Packers' record for most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver duo with 65.

Coach Mike McCarthy has stressed the importance of a seam-stretching tight end to Rodgers' offense. He bounced back for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2016, but struggles this past season without Rodgers under center.

In addition to Oakland and New England, the Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks have also been mentioned as possible landing spots.

The Los Angeles Rams have kept themselves busy over the last couple of weeks when it comes to making the necessary moves to make sure they continue being one of the top teams to beat in the NFC during Sean McVay's second season as head coach. To that point, he had six touchdowns in the first five games of the season, but he never caught another one. He has twice caught more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season, but not since 2013 - his final year with the Saints.

Teams can not officially sign players until Wednesday, March 14, but a big chunk of high profile free agents have already reached agreements with new teams.
