"It's very important for me to be a part of that here because that's about 75 percent of the offense here, and if you have a back like [Marshawn Lynch], you want to be in there on those explosive runs and you want to be part of that," Graham said Monday.

Using one of the best receiving TE's of all time to block 75% of the time...I find this not even somewhat believable.

ESPN showed some Graham blocking today and he couldn't block little corners. I don't see him ever blocking much. He will help Seattle in the red zone at the very lest though.

Let's have a test.
Line Jimmy up and go at it.
Then
Line JJ Watt up on go at it.

Who would be / or is the better TE?

Graham's after-Saints life will mirror Meachem's!

Graham is not going to fare well against the defenses in that division. I give him 6 games before he is nothing more than a decoy.

Seattle threw the least amount of passes last year out of all 32 teams. Graham will be lucky if he sees the ball thrown his way more than 3x a game..

And with his lack of blocking ability, the newness of his arrival in Seattle may wear off fast.
