The Green Bay Packers have made a couple of major moves to change up the offense. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter Tony Gonzalez Jersey , the team is signing Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham, but also releasing perennial star wideout Jordy Nelson:Packers intend to sign TE Jimmy Graham to a three-year deal, sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2018Packers are releasing WR Jordy Nelson, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13 Brooks Reed Jersey , 2018The Packers are hoping that Graham will finally supply this team with a legitimate tight end option. Martellus Bennett was signed to a three-year, $21 million contract last year - but was released mid-season.Graham was named to his fifth Pro Bowl in 2017, catching 57 passes for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns. He posted a pair of 1,000-yard seasons with the New Orleans Saints, but his three-year tenure with the Seattle Seahawks was very up-and-down Will Lutz Jersey , marred by injuries and inconsistency.But as Graham enters the Packer offense, Jordy Nelson leaves it. The 32-year-old spent 10 years in the organization. He was named to the 2014 Pro Bowl and helped Green Bay win Super Bowl 45.However, Nelson had a very down year (53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns), after posting at least 1,000 yards in four of the previous five years. Given his age (33) Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , declining production and expensive salary, a release made sense for the Pack - who can now fill other roster holes with the freed up space.Green Bay missed the postseason for the first time in nine years this past season. Rodgers missed most of the season with a fractured collarbone, and the entire team fell apart. Seeing that the rival Minnesota Vikings signed Kirk Cousins, the Packers front office had to make moves to keep pace in the NFC North.Graham will certainly help fix a Packer offense that lacks a strong ground game and is over-reliant on their receivers, namely Davanta Adams and Randall Cobb. Losing Nelson may be hard for many Packer fans to accept Justin Houston Jersey , but it probably was the logical move.Now, enjoy watching Rodgers and Graham light up the scoreboard. >The NFL divisional playoffs wrap up with a doubleheader Sunday starting in Pittsburgh where the AFC North champion Steelers (13-3) host the upstart Jacksonville Jaguars.The winner earns a trip to New England to face the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots in next week’s AFC title game.The third-seeded Jaguars (11-6) drilled the Steelers 30-9 back in October. Jacksonville picked off Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger five times in the victory.Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown is active after missing the final two games of the regular season with a left calf injury.In the NFC, second-seeded Minnesota (13-3) welcomes fourth-seeded New Orleans (12-5) for the second time this season. The Vikings dominated the Saints 29-19 in the season opener. The winner will play in Philadelphia against the top-seeded Eagles in next week’s NFC championship game.The weather could be a factor in Pittsburgh. The temperature is expected to hover in the teens throughout the day. The Jaguars are 1-8 all time in games played when the temperature at kickoff is 25 degrees or colder.It’s even chillier in Minneapolis, but the Vikings will have the roof closed when they host the Saints.
