Tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints or the Green Bay Packers.

Graham was a popular name among Ravens’ fans, as the team is in need of a pass-catching tight end. It’s looking unlikely that he will end up in Baltimore, however. Graham played his first four seasons in New Orleans, so a reunion with the Saints at the end of his career makes a lot of sense. He could ultimately view Green Bay as a major Super Bowl contender as well, with quarterback Aaron Rodgers returning from injury.

The Ravens don’t have a lot of cap space so they will have to choose wisely who to spend it on. Graham would instantly upgrade their offense, but he isn’t a long-term solution at 31 years old. The Ravens will most likely have to look to the draft to find a playmaking tight end. Guys such as Dallas Goedert, Mark Andrews, Hayden Hurst, and Mike Gesicki could all be options for Baltimore.
