Rookie Tight end Jimmy Graham Makes the "play of the day"

New Orleans Saints rookie tight end makes top play in afternoon practice


Rookie tight end Jimmy Graham, a third round pick out of Miami, made the top play of the New Orleans Saints afternoon practice Friday, a spectacular one-handed grab with a defender draped all over him.
The Saints were going 11-on-11 in first down situations when quarterback Drew Brees threw one straight down the middle to a streaking Graham, who was tightly covered by safety Roman Harper.

The ball appeared to be overthrown, but both Harper and Graham went up and Graham, fully extending his left arm, corraled the ball and held on as the pair crashed to the turf.


It was not immediately clear if Graham is a southpaw; however photos of him shooting while a basketball player for the Hurricanes suggest he is right-handed.

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Having depth at Tight End definitely doesn't hurt.

I remember another guy who played basketball most of his career and then made the switch, Gates set a precedence, let's see if Graham can follow.
