The Future Is Now For Graham

Tight end Jimmy Graham is no longer the future for the New Orleans Saints…he is the present. Jeff Duncan, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

Despite limited playing time, Graham leads Saints tight ends in touchdown catches, with five, and yards-per-catch average at 11.8. In the past nine games, his 28 catches lead rookie tight ends in the NFL. And that’s impressive, considering the number of good ones out there, among them New England’s Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, Kansas City’s Tony Moeaki, Cincinnati’s Jermaine Gresham and Baltimore’s Ed Dickson.

Graham just might be the best of the bunch.

Payton certainly thinks so. And so does Atlanta Falcons tight end and future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez.
