Jimmy Graham and the Seattle Seahawks are expected to part ways in free agency. The nine-year veteran has seen his product drop of significantly in Seattle, but he remained a dangerous red zone threat.

His biggest free agent suitor appears to be his own team in the New Orleans Saints. That doesn’t mean he’ll sign there necessarily. The Saints are trying to get Drew Brees extended, which will likely impact their $30 million cap space some. They should still have enough wiggle room for a Graham signing.

Mina Kimes of ESPN suggested Jimmy Graham would be heading to the Denver Broncos, but that could just be opinion and not sourced fact.

Graham’s production may be declining, but his red zone skills are worthy of notice. The Broncos would be wise to bring Graham in if they lose out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes. They’ll have the cap space and will definitely need the red zone threat with whatever quarterback ends up starting in 2018.
