Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham is set to take on his old team on Sunday. Graham and the Seahawks will attempt to pretty much put the final nail in the coffin of the New Orleans Saints’ playoff hopes in the Bayou.
It’s definitely an interesting matchup. A high-octane Saints offense taking on one of the best defenses in the NFL.
For Graham’s part, this game provides him an opportunity to exact revenge against the organization that traded him prior to the start of last season. Leading up to the game itself, it appears that Graham is solely focused on football and not wanting to communicate with his former teammates.

It’s not that Graham is so upset about the trade that he hasn’t communicated with old friends. Instead, he simply doesn’t want that distraction leading up to Sunday’s game against the Saints.
The good news here for Graham and his Seahawks is that he’s been absolutely dominating in recent weeks. Over the course of the past four games, Graham has caught 23 passes for 355 yards. He now takes on one of the worst defenses in football. This definitely bodes well for his hopes of dominating the Saints in what has to be considered a revenge game for the three-time Pro Bowler.
