The Facts: One potential play-maker hitting the market: Graham is not expected back in Green Bay, sources say.
Diehards Line: The move with the 33-year old former free agent signing is noteable, though not a surprise for anyone involved -- although Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports that nothing’s been done to formalize his release at this point. As Profootballtalk.com notes, releasing Graham would clear $8 million in cap space for the Packers, which could be used in a play for impending free agent Austin Hooper as they’re reportedly interested in making a play for him. They do have Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger under contract at tight end for next season. Graham caught 38 passes for 447 yards and three touchdowns last season. Those numbers were down from his first year with the team and the catches and receiving yards were his fewest since his rookie season.
