Ouch

At least the Gute is doing what he can to try and improve the roster.  I take it we'll be players in free agency for a safety, but it will cost us.  Swearenger would have been a good get for 4.5 mil in 2019.

Kruse:

Aaron Rodgers has targeted Jimmy Graham in the red zone just once in the last 7 games. Only 9 targets the whole year, 2 TDs. Pairing was a total bust in 2018.

Might put a different shine on the "Graham wasnt worth his contract" discussion.

That happens when you can't get open.  Graham has  looked slow and extremely unathletic this year.  He's been a check down TE that is as bad of a blocker as you'll ever find at his position.  Combine that with bad, inconsistent hands and the result is a disastrous season.  Given the obvious lack of talent that we had at WR this year this should have been a year where he earned that ridiculous contract.

One more on Sunday and that'll be $1 million per RZ target for Graham. Good deal for him.

He cant throw himself the ball.
Now - if you accept SSG's comment that he cant get open - well, therein lies the "he aint worth it" discussion.
I guess I've not seen enough games or tape to support that conclusion however and not really interested in the discussion.

My post was made for statistical reasons. I found the number of targets low.

If you're waiting for a 6'7 260 player to run away from a DB you aren't playing QB well.

Aaron would probably have more picks if he did.

Graham cant reliably catch anymore

His career catch % is ~64%.

This year his catch % is ~62%

That's not much variation from his norm.

Don't tell anyone that, it doesn't fit the narrative.

He’s insurance against a team jumping us in the draft and a bargaining chip in negotiations.

Isn't Graham playing with a broken thumb right now?

Yes. Very surprised he didn’t go to IR. Must know that if he’s cut, he won’t earn a contract better than what he has.
