Packers' Jimmy Graham: Claims he can run 4.5 40
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham believes he can replicate his production from his time with the Saints, noting that he's "still 6-[foot]-7 and can still run a 4.5 [40-yard dash]," Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Graham technically ran a 4.56 40 time while checking in at 6-foot-6, 260 pounds at the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine, but there's little reason to doubt the broader idea that he's still one of the most athletic tight ends in the league. The Packers apparently believe that to be the case, as they signed the 31-year-old to a three-year, $30 million contract in mid-March, right around the time veteran wideout Jordy Nelson was released. Green Bay does have a way to get out of the deal after one season, as Graham's $11 million signing bonus is the only fully guaranteed portion of his contract, per OverTheCap.com. Graham was a bit of a disappointment in his three-year run with Seattle, struggling to make an impact near the goal line (eight scores in 27 games) his first two seasons, and then struggling outside the red zone (10 touchdowns, 5.3 yards per target) in 2017. Aaron Rodgers already has strong chemistry with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, but it isn't unreasonable to think that Graham could push the latter for No. 2 status in Green Bay's passing attack.

Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Frustrated with front office
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is frustrated with the lack of communication between him and the Packers front office this offseason, Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Rodgers likely understands that he can't make decisions for management, but he wishes the team had at least consulted him before cutting ties with former quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt and wide receiver Jordy Nelson. The 34-year-old quarterback doesn't seem to be a huge fan of new general manager Brian Gutenkunst, potentially making it a bit tougher to hammer out a contract extension. Rodgers' current deal has him scheduled to make $20.6 million in 2018 and $21.1 million in 2019, per OverTheCap. Fully recovered from last year's broken collarbone, Rodgers likely wants an extension that matches or exceeds the contracts recently signed by Kirk Cousins, Jimmy Garoppolo and Matthew Stafford -- all featuring an average annual value of at least $27 million, per OTC. The Packers did at least do Rodgers one favor this offseason when they replaced Nelson with another red-zone weapon in the form of tight end Jimmy Graham. The team signed Davante Adams to a four-year extension in December and seemingly plans to keep Randall Cobb for at least one more season.

Packers' Davon House: Returns to Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers signed House to a one-year contract Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

In his return to Green Bay last season, House tended to a quad injury early and a shoulder concern late, resulting in four DNPs. When healthy, though, he accrued 31 tackles, one interception and one sack during a six-game stretch midseason. After the offseason addition of Tramon Williams, the Packers likely will roll with a starting CB duo of Williams and 2017 second-round pick Kevin King. No matter, House should be the first player called upon in the event of an injury or when a third cornerback is needed.
