Jimmy Graham (born November 24, 1986) is an American football tight end for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He played only one year of college football at Miami after playing four years of basketball.
In his second season in the NFL, Graham had 99 receptions for 1,310 yards and 11 touchdowns. That year he made his first Pro Bowl appearance and was selected as an All-Pro player at his position. He became the first tight end in Saints history to have more than 1,000 receiving yards in a season. Graham set the Saints franchise record for receptions in a season while also tying the Saints franchise record for touchdowns in a season (tied with Marques Colston and Joe Horn). Graham is also second all-time for most receiving yards and receiving touchdowns by a tight end in a single season.
In 2014, Graham signed a new 4-year agreement with the Saints that made him the highest-paid tight end in the league. On March 10, 2015, Graham was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for center Max Unger and the Seahawks' first round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.
