The Green Bay Packers have reached an agreement with Jimmy Graham. Brian Gutekunst is making big moves after signing the former Seattle Seahawks player to a three-year deal. Graham was arguably the best tight end of this free agency. Unfortunately, the signing of Graham resulted in the release of Jordy Nelson per Ryan Glasspiegel .
Nelson was not only a fan favorite in Green Bay but anyone who has watched the Packers knows that the wide receiver shares a special bond with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers ‘liked’ a tweet from ESPN’s Rich Eisen pertaining to the acquisition of Graham and release of Nelson. The tweet compared Nelson’s Super Bowl stats to Graham.
Rodgers currently has two years left on his contract, but extension talks are ongoing with many expecting the Packers to make him the highest paid player in NFL history. However, only time will tell just how upset Rodgers is about the loss of Nelson.
