Jimmy Graham, TE

Jimmy Graham’s time in Green Bay was a relatively short one. He only played two seasons for the Packers.

The five-time Pro Bowl tight end didn’t meet expectations in Green Bay, catching 93 passes for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns in the 32 games he played.

After being released by the Packers in 2020, Graham signed with the Chicago Bears. In his first year in Chicago, Graham caught 50 passes for 456 yards and eight touchdowns.

However, he saw his playing time decrease significantly in 2021. Graham had just 14 receptions for 167 yards and three touchdowns last year.

Graham is entering his age-36 season and remains a free agent. Has he played his final snap in the NFL? It’s entirely possible.

Graham is experienced and, at his best, was one of the best tight ends in the league. But those days are long gone.

If Graham is finished in the NFL, he put together an incredible career. He had two 1,000-yard seasons with the New Orleans Saints and led the NFL with 16 receiving touchdowns in 2013. Graham had more receiving touchdowns (51) than he did starts in New Orleans (50).

But given his age and lack of playing time for the Bears last season, one has to wonder whether Graham has played his final NFL snap.
