When the Packers signed tight end Jimmy Graham to a three-year , $30 million contract last offseason, they were expecting him to last more than one year. That might not happen.There’s talk in Green Bay that Graham could be cut this year. That’s what Pete Dougherty, Packers columnist for the , thinks is going to happen. Although Dougherty makes clear he is guessing that Graham will get cut, not reporting it, he’s a longtime team observer who’s well-positioned to make educated guesses.And cutting Graham would make sense: He was disappointing in his first year as a Packer Jason Spriggs Jersey , even admitting himself in December that he hadn’t done much to help the team win. Graham is due a $5.3 million roster bonus on March 15, so it’s easy to envision the Packers cutting him before then.If the Packers do cut Graham, they’ll save $5.3 million on their salary cap but he’ll still carry a $7.3 million dead cap charge. If the Packers think it’s time to build their new offense around new players, that $5.3 million in savings may better be spent elsewhere. With time winding down in the first half, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers were near midfield trying to get into field-goal range to add onto a 17-7 lead.Rodgers handled a snap on second-and-22, felt pressure Mike Daniels Color Rush Jersey , escaped the pocket and scrambled for 21 yards before he slid to mark the play dead. But Atlanta defensive back Brian Poole collided with Rodgers as the quarterback was sliding.The Packers didn鈥檛 like that — and a fight broke out.Leading the charge was Lucas Patrick, a third-year player who was getting his first start of the season at left guard. Defending Rodgers, Patrick took on about five Falcons himself before Corey Linsley, Robert Tonyan and Randall Cobb stepped in the scrum.It was a miniscule moment in a rather impressive 34-20 win over Atlanta, but Patrick displayed the type of fight this Packers team had been lacking during their three-game losing streak.Filling in for an injured Lane Taylor at left guard, Patrick played in all 65 snaps against the Falcons. He had appeared in just 24 total snaps on the season coming into Sunday鈥檚 game , and it was his first action on the field since Week 6.After spending 2016 on Green Bay鈥檚 practice squad, Patrick stepped in last season and played 227 offensive snaps while starting two games due to injury.He was one of three backup linemen to start against the Falcons, joining Justin McCray and Jason Spriggs. Rodgers had good protection most of the afternoon, although Pro Football Focus claims Patrick allowed four quarterback pressures.Other notes from Sunday鈥檚 snap counts:— For the first time all season, wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown played more snaps (34) than Marquez Valdes-Scantling (30).— It seemed odd when Jamaal Williams got the start at running back, but when all was said and done Dean Lowry Jersey , Aaron Jones ended up getting more snaps and significantly more touches. Jones rushed 17 times and caught three passes, while Williams only saw four carries — three of those in the first half.— Cornerback Bashaud Breeland returned from a two-game absence and picked off his second pass of the season, taking it to the house in the second quarter for a 17-7 Packers lead. He played 23 total defensive snaps, 13 of those from the slot.— Fan-favorite receiver Jake Kumerow played just six snaps and was not targeted by Rodgers. He made his NFL debut a week ago.OFFENSEPLAYERPlays (65)%Patrick65100%Spriggs65100%Linsley65100%Bakhtiari6498%Rodgers6498%McCray6295%Adams5686%Graham4772%Cobb4468%Jones4265%St. Brown3452%Valdes-Scantling3046%Williams2437%Kendricks1726%Lewis1625%Tonyan711%Kumerow69%Light35%Vitale23%Pankey12%Kizer12%DEFENSEPLAYERPlays (71)%Martinez71100%Alexander71100%Williams71100%Brice6592%Jones6389%Brown5983%Fackrell5780%Lowry5679%Jackson5679%Matthews5577%Clark5172%Gilbert3042%Breeland2332%Lancaster2231%Adams1217%Morrison710%Pleasant68%Redmond57%Brown11%
