It’s looking more and more like Jimmy Graham’s time in Seattle is coming to an end, as the Seahawks tight end is expected to hit the free agent market this offseason. If he does, Graham will be the top available player at his position, which should mean he’ll get a lot of interest from teams who are looking for a game-changer at the TE spot.
Among the teams that are said to have their eyes on the 31-year-old former Miami Hurricane is a familiar face in the New Orleans Saints.
According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Saints are expected to make a stab at their former star tight end in free agency:

Despite putting up an impressive 10 touchdowns last season, most people will tell you that Jimmy Graham has never been the same since he left the Saints for Seattle back in 2015. In his five years in New Orleans, he put up 386 receptions, 4752 yards, and 51 touchdowns, compared to just 170 receptions for 2048 yards and 18 touchdowns in three years with Seattle.
