General manager Brian Gutekunst suggested Graham will stay with the Packers for 2019, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Apparently satisfied with Graham's 55-636-2 receiving line on 89 targets (7.1 YPT) in an Aaron Rodgers offense, Gutekunst expressed his faith in the veteran tight end remaining a viable starting option heading into the upcoming season. It would be hard to argue against dropping Graham after the first season of his three-year, $30 million contract, but the Packers seemingly anticipate the 32-year-old improving his performance under new head coach Matt LaFleur. The team will need to make a final decision before March 15, when Graham is scheduled to receive a $5 million roster bonus.
