NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is soaring to new heights -- literally.
The Pro Bowl star manned the cockpit in a small plane Wednesday and took a ride over the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
You can see him huddled in the front seat -- apparently a bit tight for his 6'7" frame -- of the picture above.
Last week Graham announced he had reached a next level of pilot certificaton.
