Who says Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham doesn’t block? Well, Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable does.
OK, Cable didn’t say it. But he strongly implied in Saturday comments to reporters.
Via Curtis Crabtree of KJR radio and PFT, Cable said that Graham is committed to learning to block. Which means that he doesn’t really know how to block. Which means he doesn’t really block.
Which means that guys like Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett were right when they said that Graham “doesn’t help in the blocking game.”
Graham is an incredible athlete and there’s no reason he can’t become a better blocker. Surely, however, the Saints tried to make him one during his five years there.
