Not long after the news that Jimmy Graham was going to sign with the Green Bay Packers, another report says Jordy Nelson will be cut.
No word on how much the 31-year-old Graham will make but it looks to be a 3-year deal. Nelson, who will be 33 on May 31, spent 10 seasons with Green Bay. His release saves Green Bay $10.2 million
Also affecting the Packers is Kirk Cousins signing a 3-year, $86-million deal with the Minnesota Vikings. That could set the table for Aaron Rodgers’ negotiations. The 34-year-old will be a free agent after next season.
The Cousins’ signing comes after news that every Vikings quarterback from next season will be headed elsewhere.
- Case Keenum is reportedly signing a 2-year, $36-million deal with the Denver Broncos. He made $2 million in Minnesota.
- Teddy Bridgewater is working on a deal to the New York Jets.
- And news is Sam Bradford is signing a 1-year, $20-million deal with the Arizona Cardinals.
Other free agents the Packers were interested in that have reportedly come off the market today, before free agency officially begins Wednesday, include Allen Robinson going to Chicago (3 years, $42 million) and Sammy Watkins to the Chiefs (3 years, $48 million).
By comparison, Green Bay re-signed Davante Adams to a 4-year, $48-million deal in December.
