The Green Bay Packers intend to sign tight end Jimmy Graham to a three-year contract, according to multiple reports.

The 31-year-old may not be in his prime any longer, but gives Aaron Rodgers another dangerous red-zone weapon alongside Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. Graham scored 10 touchdowns for the Seattle Seahawks last season despite just 520 receiving yards.

Graham is one of the most prolific tight ends of all time, racking up 69 TDs in just eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints and Seahawks. He broke out in 2011 as one of Drew Brees’s go-to targets and had his best season in 2013 with 16 touchdown receptions and 1,215 receiving yards.

The Saints made Graham the NFL’s highest-paid tight end in July 2014, but was then traded to Seattle the next off-season. In 43 games for the Seahawks from 2015-17, Graham recorded just over 2,000 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns.
