Good Article on Graham

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The muscles in Jimmy Graham’s sculpted neck and shoulders clench as his face gets darkly serious. As Graham sits in a restaurant roughly a mile from the University of Miami, where he played tight end last year after a four-year career there in basketball, he is getting ready to block.

The memories of his mother’s mistreatment of him, that is.


“I laugh when people say, ‘Oh, he’s a basketball player, let’s see if he’s tough enough [for the NFL],’ ” Graham said following a workout last Thursday. Earlier in the day, Graham met with Cleveland Browns tight ends coach Steve Hagen, one of many NFL types to take interest in him of late. “They don’t understand what I’ve been through.”

Wow! What an amazing story. I don't think there's anything this guy can't handle after what he has been through. He has come to the right Franchise because the fans will love this guy and make him feel so welcome. I love the Tight Ends we have but would like this kid to have a chance to show to the other franchises what they missed out on. Welcome to New Orleans Jimmy Graham.

I like this kid. I didn't see anywhere where he blamed others. He didn't quit. Let's get him a ring for next year.

Re: Good Article on Graham

"There are strong indications Graham has the right temperament for football. As he likes to point out, he had more personal fouls than made baskets during his college hoops career.

In fact, it’s not real close. As a power forward who specialized in rebounding and defense, Graham channeled the spirit of Rick Mahorn and Bill Laimbeer, piling up 277 career fouls and 201 career baskets. At one point in a three-game span of his freshman year, Graham had 11 fouls in 30 minutes of game action."

Shockey is going to have to show him how to calm down. LOL
The best pick of the draft.

Maybe not so much calm down as channeling the energy like JS does. Sounds like he might have a nasty streak on the field.

The Force is strong with this one.
