Jimmy Graham interested in signing with Saints or Packers

Nelson would have carried a $12.5 million cap hit for the upcoming season, as he still had one-year left on the four-year, $39 million deal he signed with Green Bay prior to the 2015 season. His release saves Green Bay more than $10.2 million.

The Packers are among the teams that have already reached out to the representatives for free-agent tight end Jimmy Graham, sources informed of the situation have told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero.

Initially, ISA envisaged 121 sunshine countries situated between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn as its members. As per a report from Mercom India, India crossed just over 20 gigawatts of solar energy production in January.

Graham, 31, was reportedly receiving heavy interest from the Saints and teaming up again with Drew Brees but will instead join the best quarterback in the league with Rodgers. However, Nelson struggled in 2017 as Rodgers missed significant time, finishing with 53 catches for 482 yards and six scores. He has caught at least nine touchdowns in five of the last seven seasons.

According to multiple reports, Graham will either end up with the Saints or the Packers. New GM Brian Gutekunst has signaled he will be much more active in free agency than Ted Thompson. Tuesday's moves would seem to affirm that approach. The Packers have a huge hole at tight end last season after Martellus Bennett didn't work out. Nelson was selected to the Pro Bowl and named second-team All-Pro by The Associated Press for his performance during the 2014 season in which he set career highs in receptions (98) and receiving yards (franchise-record 1,519) while also hauling in 13 touchdowns.
