NEW ORLEANS – Jimmy Graham could be saying goodbye to the Seahawks and reuniting with the Saints, CBSSports reports.
Graham and the Seahawks are expected to part ways when free agency begins and the Saints, along with other teams, are eyeing the tight end.
Graham was traded by the Saints in 2015. Last year, current Saints tight ends Coby Fleener, Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui have combined for 62 catches and 472 yards.
Graham averaged 88.8 catches and 1,099 yards per year over his final seasons with the Saints.
One reason why he was traded in 2015 was because of the dispute in deciding whether he was a tight end or a wide receiver for the purposes of his tender offer.
After getting Graham under contract with a four-year, $40 million deal in July 2014, the Saints traded him for center Max Unger in 2015.
It seems that current Saints players are already enjoying the idea of them possibly being reunited with Graham. Cameron Jordan and Mark Ingram are just a few players that have taken to social media about it.
