We know Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has received some attention for his big start to the year, but we’re not sure people realize just how ridiculously good Graham has been.
The record at the tight end position for yards in a season is 1,280 by Kellen Winslow (Sr.). Graham is on pace for 1,648 yards. Only two wide receivers have more yards than Graham this year.
The second year player beats cornerbacks, safeties, and linebackers. He’s one of the toughest players in the league to get down, consistently bouncing off tacklers.
Florio had Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune on PFT Live Friday, and Duncan believes Graham has Canton potential. It seems a little early for Hall of Fame talk, but that’s the kind of year Graham is enjoying.
