Packers to Release TE Jimmy Graham

Jimmy Graham

The Green Bay Packers announced that the release of tight end Jimmy Graham will take place sometime on Thursday. The organization is parting ways with the former Pro Bowler two seasons after signing him. The Packers will be freeing up $8 million dollars in cap space by releasing Graham.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Wednesday afternoon.

After opening up some cap space, the Packers will look to work on their offense. Reports have recently shown that the team is interested in pursuing pending free agent TE Austin Hooper.

Graham has spent the past two seasons with the Packers. Over those years, the tight end caught 93 passes for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns. Since Graham was never a huge piece of the Packers’ offense, it was expected that the team would release him before the 2020 season.

Graham will be heading into his eleventh season come 2020. With five Pro Bowl selections and a First-Team All-Pro Honor, the tight end has more than enough experience to improve a few teams. It will be interesting to see who signs the veteran.
