  Saints | Jimmy Graham should emerge as pass-catching tight end    Tue Feb 22, 07:03 PM

New Orleans Saints second-year TE Jimmy Graham can quickly take over the team's pass catching role at tight end with the release of TE Jeremy Shockey, reports Pat Yasinskas, of ESPN. Graham has tremendous upside and emerged quickly during his first season. The team will likely keep TE David Thomas, too, who will rotate with Graham and serve as the blocking option.

Footballguys view: Graham was a basketball star in college, and only had 17 receptions during his single season of college football. We saw glimpses this year of the type of player he could become. It wouldn't surprise us to see Jimmy Graham develop into one of the best in the game.
