Jimmy Graham On Pace To Break Receiving Yardage Record
Most people know that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is on pace to break Dan Marino’s single-season record for passing yards, nedding only 305 yards more, in the last two games.
Another impressive record that may be broken by a member of the Saints is Kellen Winslow’s single-season receiving yardage record by a tight end.
Winslow set the record, back in 1980, with 1,290 receiving yards.
Graham currently has 1,171 receiving yards, with two games remaining.
He also has a shot at Tony Gonzalez’s NFL record of 102 receptions by a tight end, set in 1994.
Graham currently has 87 catches with two games remaining, putting him on pace for just over 99 catches.
