The band may be getting back together.

The NFL's legal tampering period opened Monday and the New Orleans Saints have strong interest in a reunion with impending free-agent tight end Jimmy Graham, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The Green Bay Packers have also reached out to Graham's reps, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports, citing sources

Graham spent the first five years of his career in Louisiana before he was traded to the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 for Max Unger and a first-round draft pick.

The Saints have had trouble replacing the 31-year-old since the deal was made.

Graham recovered from a patellar tendon injury to be a consistent producer for the Seahawks. He tallied 2,048 yards and 18 touchdowns during his three-year stint in Seattle.

While paired with quarterback Drew Brees from 2010-14, the red-zone target caught 51 touchdowns, was a one-time First-Team All-Pro, and was named a Pro Bowler on three separate occasions.
