On Sunday, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham gained 32 of his 100 receiving yards on one play — an awesome catch and run that included hurdling and banging and relentless rumbling toward the end zone, which continued even after his knees were down.
If you haven’t seen it, the Saints have posted the NFL Films version of the play on the team’s website.
Graham joined PFT Live on Thursday to talk about the play, and the unusual path that led him to the NFL. If you don’t know much about him, it’s time to learn. You’ll be plenty hearing about this new-school talent with old-school passion soon.
Meanwhile, Graham needs a good nickname. (Apparently, nothing that he is called by teammates is suitable for mixed company.) We’re taking your suggestions in the comments.
