Summary

Jimmy Graham is an exceptional athlete that came into the NFL with very little experience after playing football only one year at the University of Miami, and that after he had played basketball for four years. In his one collegiate season, he caught only 17 passes and similarly, started slowly in his 2010 rookie NFL season. He had only 3 targets and 1 catch for 11 yards in his first five games. However, he closed out his rookie year well, catching 30 passes on 41 targets for 345 yards and 5 TDs, giving a hint of production to come. From 2011 through 2013, Graham led the Saints in targets (447), receptions (270), yardage (3,507) and TDs (36). He has missed only one game and consistently comes up huge for his team on big downs and in the red zone. Graham signed a four-year $40 Million contract in July with $20.9 Million guaranteed and will again be Brees' primary target in 2014. (August 9)

Saints | Coach not happy with touchdown celebration (Sat Aug 16, 10:51 AM) - New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton was upset with TE Jimmy Graham earning two 15-yard unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties in the team's preseason game for dunking the ball over the goal posts. Graham and Payton appeared to get into tense verbal sparring after the second penalty was called. Payton confirmed he was upset after the game. “Yes, I was,” Payton said. “I'm very upset. Would you be upset? I was, particularly.”

Our View: Wanna hug it out? Graham was a former basketball star in college at Miami, and he's known for dunking it over the goal posts.
