Jimmy Graham: Drew Brees and I are more dynamic

There were reports earlier that New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was still struggling with dropped passes in camp. He struggled with drops last two season so while some were worried that he hadn’t corrected that problem, Jimmy Graham spun it a different way.

“Drew and I are already in mid-season form,” Graham said, via Jim Corbett of USA Today.

Of course dropped passes weren’t what Graham was addressing when giving that quote. He was talking about a 65-yard touchdown pass he had received from Drew Brees in practice. Though the defense claimed he had been ‘tagged’ and marked down at the 35-yard line.

“Right now, we’re more dynamic offensively than we’ve ever been,” Graham said.

Graham is coming off a down year, he fought through a left wrist injury that required surgery. Surprising that a 85 reception, 982 yard and 9 touchdown season could be a down year.

“Last year was very difficult playing all season with that much pain,” said Graham, who won’t reveal whether the wrist was broken. “But that’s football.

“I’m going to be a man and play for this team no matter what.”

A healthy Graham is looking to rebound to the form he was in 2 years ago when he caught 99 passes for 1,310 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Oh yea Jimmy? IS THAT why youve been dropping so many balls? Like I always say, you can never trust an orphan.

Have not seen a number. But there were several reports out of camp. I am not worried once the season starts he will be fine.
