Seahawks acquire Graham from New Orleans

( – Just minutes before the NFL’s free agency period was set
to begin, the New Orleans Saints reportedly agreed to a trade that will send
All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham to the two-time reigning NFC champion Seattle

The reported trade would send Graham and a fourth-round draft pick to Seattle
in exchange for center Max Unger and Seattle’s first-round pick.

Graham, a former basketball star at the University of Miami, has been one of
the league’s most dominant tight ends since his breakout season in 2011.

He has appeared in 78 of a possible 80 games in five years with New Orleans,
accumulating 4,752 yards and 51 touchdown catches, including a league-best 16
in 2013.

In Unger, New Orleans gets a 28-year-old, two-time Pro Bowler to bolster its
offensive line.
