Graham, 33, has played 10 professional seasons with time spent on the Saints, Seahawks and Packers. He was released days before free agency started by the Packers. The veteran tight end has 649 career receptions for 7,883 yards and 74 touchdowns. He has slowed down considerably in the last few seasons, but still had 38 receptions for 447 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games last season for the Packers.
The Bears will hope that Graham can give a jolt to their offense after struggling last year. Graham will likely be the starter over Trey Burton, who has battled injuries and inconsistencies in his two years with the Bears.
