NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports the Packers have "reached out" to free agent Jimmy Graham. 10 years after getting drafted by the Packers, Jordy Nelson has officially been released from the team.
Graham, 31, caught 57 passes for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns with the Seattle Seahawks previous year, showcasing his ability to be a force in the red zone.
Nelson would immediately slot in as Seattle's number two receiving option and would benefit tremendously from having Russell Wilson as his quarterback, as opposed to Brett Hundley who was his primary QB previous year in Rodgers' absence.

Four teams this season argue they have as good a chance as any of their Big Ten predecessors to win the title. Champions are made in the offseason and the work began during the summer with individual workouts.
According to Spotrac, the release clears $10.2 million in cap space for the Packers, which will certainly help in signing Graham. That, coupled with the Jimmy Graham earlier on Tuesday, has Aaron Rodgers' offense in a state of complete transition. Releasing Nelson may not be a permanent move, however.
The question now is: what's the market like for a 32 year-old, oft-injured receiver who has seen a dramatic reduction in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns this past season?
After tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during an August 2015 preseason game at Pittsburgh, Nelson returned in 2016 and caught 97 passes for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns to earn the NFL's comeback player of the year award.
