Jimmy Graham, the best tight end in the NFL, has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for lineman Max Unger and Seattle’s 1st round pick in the 2015 draft.
This is a blockbuster, to say the least, considering the Saints just paid Graham $13 million last season to sign him to an extension. Also, the Seahawks and Graham had in January 2014, with Seattle calling him “soft.”
The Saints, in total rebuilding mode, are cap-strapped, and need to free up room, and this certainly qualifies. But offensively, this a colossal loss for New Orleans.
Seattle? Well, the Seahawks could be headed back to a 3rd straight Super Bowl.
