Jimmy Graham has a high-flying hobby

As if Saints fans didn’t have enough about which to worry, they now have a star tight end who likes to spend his time soaring far higher than the top of a crossbar.

Buried in an item from Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune regarding the continuing improvement of one of the best tight ends in the game is discussion of a hobby that could erase Jimmy Graham’s skills.


Graham likes to fly planes.  His newest passion is single-engine acrobatic planes, into which six-foot-seven-inch humans apparently can fit.

“Flying is the most freeing thing I’ve ever done,” Graham said.  “It’s incredible because you’re up there, and you’re by yourself.  And you’re in control, and there’s no boundaries — for the most part, except for storms and the ground.”

So while it’s convenient to now say the sky is the limit for Graham’s career, the only real limit could be, you know, the ground.

    If he ever graces the cover of Madden that could be interesting.

    Well I plan on seeing him soaring around the crossbar at least 15+ times this season!

    He will easily after buy whichever plane he wants after he gets a deal redo…… He needs to send a Thank You to Gronk.

    Kurt Warner won’t let his kids fly planes.

    As a Buc fan, i’ll be watchin Mr Graham very closely. After seeing Gronk’s deal, and with Brees’ deal around the corner, there is no way Nawleans will be able to keep him.

    I’m thinking he’d look very nice in Red & Pewter!!

    John Denver thinks flying gives you a Rocky Mountain high.

    Even acrobatic flying of small planes is probably much, much safer per unit of time that motorcycling. No big deal.
