Jimmy Graham is reportedly on his way out of New Orleans.
According to Fox’s Jay Glazer and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the tight end is headed to the defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for Pro Bowl center Max Unger and a first-round pick.
Graham has averaged nearly 90 receptions per season over the last four years and is a three-time All-Pro selection.
Graham, who caught 85 passes for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the Saints last July. He immediately becomes a premiere pass-catching option for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.
On the other side of the deal, the Saints bring in Unger, a two-time Pro Bowl selection who has started 67 games since being picked by the Seahawks out of Oregon in the second round of the 2009 draft.
Additionally, according to Rapoport, the Saints will receive the Seahawks first-round pick (No. 31 overall) in the upcoming draft.
