Saints Trade Jimmy Graham to Seahawks
In the first trade in this very young NFL year, the New Orleans Saints have traded Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks for center Max Unger and a 1st round pick.
Graham is a three-time Pro Bowler, a former first-team NFL All-Pro and is generally considered a one of the best in the game at his position. He had 51 career touchdown catches over his five-year pro career.
So it's obvious that the Seahawks are looking to go back to the Super Bowl by giving Russell Wilson another option in Graham and keeping Marshawn Lynch happy.
Unger has been the best starting center for the Seahawks since his rookie season and will fill an immediate need at center for the Saints.
