Jimmy Graham (TE)
The New Orleans Saints are notorious for bouncing around from old tight end to another old tight end. Hence we currently are with Jared Cook. However, that wasn’t always the case. In 2010, the New Orleans Saints drafter a third-round tight end out of the University of Miami (FL).
That tight end ended up being Jimmy Graham, one of the most notable tight ends in franchise history. Jimmy Graham ended up only playing from 2010 to 2014 with the New Orleans Saints, but they were the best years of his career.
He went to the Pro-Bowl in three of the four years, he was a 2013 first-team All-Pro selection; and in 2013 he led the entire NFL in receiving touchdowns for the year, beating out all other tight ends and even wide receivers.
Throughout his years on the Saints, Jimmy Graham was regarded to some as the potential to be as great as Tony Gonzalez. He left the Saints via a trade with the Seattle Seahawks after being disgruntled for most of the 2014 season. However, that doesn’t change the impact he had on the team for this decade.
