Free agent tight end Jermaine Gresham is visiting the Green Bay Packers according to reports.

The two-time Pro Bowler has been a free agent since being released by the Cincinnati Bengals in March this year.

The 27-year-old is one of the most sought for tight ends on the free agency, but due to the fact he had to have surgery to repair a herniated disc, many teams have not given him a call.

He was allowed to hit the free agency by the Bengals after his five-year contract with the team end as they saw more of a future in Tyler Eifert.

Last year, Gresham achieved 460 yards and five touchdowns from 62 passes, the second highest passes caught in the team behind wide receiver A.J. Green.

The two-time Pro Bowler has already drawn interest from the Arizona Cardinals, New Orleans Saints, and now the Green Bay Packers.

One of the reasons why the Packers might be going for Gresham is because their starting tight end, Andrew Quarless, could be missing some time at the start of the season.

He was included in an alleged gun incident in Miami earlier this month and could still be punished.

The 27-year-old has had a lacklustre NFL career so far despite his size. Gresham has only managed to achieve 280 receptions for 2,722 yards and 24 touchdowns across 74 games in his NFL career.

If Gresham his signed up by the Packers, he will have Aaron Rodgers passing to him, not Andy Dalton. A big of a difference in quarterback performance, which should turn into a big difference in production on the field.

This move could finally see Gresham play at his full potential of a first round pick, the round he was selected at by the Bengals in the 2010 NFL Draft.
