Packers sign former Lions tight end Michael Roberts, per report

https://www.profootballr...s-off-waivers-from-lions

To the posters who really know this stuff ( I don't)....if there a chance the Packers cut Jimmy Graham?

IIRC, there was a date sometime this summer that they would save a chunk of money if they did.

Nerd also pointed out that Graham had quite a few drops in OTA...I am just wondering.

This was a no name waiver claim. It doesn't affect Jimmy directly. But, if 3-4 guys step up this summer he could be gone. Unfortunately we paid his huge roster bonus in march. From what I remember there isn't much savings left this year.

Just how many TE do they need in camp? They have 8 already.

I never even heard of “Michael Roberts” until this thread, so I’m not overly concerned that he won’t be playing here.

Very slightly higher than zero chance before 2020... Graham might be filling the large slot position which is extremely important in this offense.

They could cut him and save $4m in cap, but they would have $8.666m in dead cap. I don't think there is much logic to devoting 8.666m in cap space to not having Jimmy Graham on the team.

Next year the savings would be $8m and the cap hit $3.666m, so cutting him seems likely unless he has a big year.

I had heard if him a few days before when the Lions tried to trade him to the Patriots but he failed the Patriots physical. There was probably not much chance he passed the Packers physical either but there was no harm done in bringing him in for a look.

They can keep that revolving door going at the back end of the roster as far as I am concerned. Chances are they won't land any big help so I won't get too excited over any of them but all they need is a guy who is better than the someone else to make the roster stronger.

Zero2Cool (21h) : Why spend 160 hours getting a new version vs spending 320 building exactly what I want?
Zero2Cool (21h) : Nah gbguy, your concerns were easy to fix, and part of the end plan. The steps getting there were too much.

gbguy20 (13-Jul) : may or may not be a really quick experiment. but, everything on packerpeople.com is huge, and super spaced out. if it is possible to reduce the overall forum font size that might also change the spaci
Zero2Cool (12-Jul) : gbguy, it's far from done yet, i just don't know your specific pain point. I know subforums need moved.
Porforis (12-Jul) : Not to be an enabler, but why would you want to break it?
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : it might help me break my packers reading addiction though. so maybe its a good thing.
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : i know it sounds dumb, maybe its a different experience on your device. but on my 2 devices its different enough where it is very unuserfriendly
Zero2Cool (12-Jul) : I'll have to look into that gbguy and make it gooder.
Cheesey (12-Jul) : Yup gbguy. Not everyone has money to spend on “extras”. I know exactly what you mean.
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : nsd. because I don't have extra spending money and I can't justify paying even $50 when I currently have a working phone that for the most part does the job
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : nsd
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : it's horribly different kevin. on this forum i get to where i want to be in 1 click and no scrolling. on that forum there is a lot of leg work to get to anything relevant.

Zero2Cool (12-Jul) : How? it is not much different lol
gbguy20 (12-Jul) : took me 20 minutes to navigate that forum to test it but yes it works on that version.

gbguy20 (11-Jul) : yes
Zero2Cool (11-Jul) : On PackersHome?
