Payton guarded on Graham’s status

Posted by Chris Brown on October 25, 2013 – 9:59 am

Saints TE Jimmy Graham has yet to practice this week as his foot is still bothering him despite the bye week. New Orleans head coach Sean Payton was understandably guarded in describing Graham’s status for Sunday.

“He is day to day. Friday will be an important day,” said Payton. “We will just kind of go by that.”

Graham has been a beast in the passing game for the Saints this season, especially at home where he has six touchdowns in his last four home games. In that span he has 26 catches for 394 yards (98.5 per game).

Report: Saints TE Graham uncertain for Sun.

Posted by Chris Brown on October 21, 2013 – 9:15 am

On the heels of their win over Miami Sunday, the Bills now prepare for the daunting task of trying to get a win in one of the toughest places to play in the league, the Superdome in New Orleans. Their task could be made a bit easier however, if New Orleans is without one of their most dynamic receiving weapons this coming Sunday.

ESPN is reporting that Saints TE Jimmy Graham, who left New Orleans Week 6 game at New England with a foot injury is uncertain for this week’s game against the Bills, despite having a week off this past weekend with the Saints on the bye.

Sources told ESPN that Graham likely would’ve been sidelined this past weekend if New Orleans had a game on their schedule.

Graham leads the Saints in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns with six TDs in six games.

TE Graham’s athleticism is his ticket

Posted by Chris Brown on April 9, 2010 – 10:30 am

Miami TE Jimmy Graham, who played all of one year of college football, is an athletic specimen at 6’6″ 260. And according to ESPN’s Mel Kiper, it’ll be more than enough to get him drafted on day two (rounds 2 and 3).

“Obviously you take a chance and roll the dice on a guy like this,” Kiper said. “With his size and the way he runs you could take a player with his athletic ability in the third round. Sure he looked a little bit unnatural catching the football last year and he didn’t look like a guy that was ready to play in the NFL, but who would have expected that?

“Blocking is an issue and he needs more reps catching the ball. But when you’re that big, that fast, that athletic I see him going in the third round. I have him going to the Browns in round three, and there are a few other teams that I think will consider him in that round.”
