Jimmy Graham Returns to Saints in Bid for NFL Comeback

New Orleans, LA – Jimmy Graham is making his NFL comeback, returning to the New Orleans Saints, the team where he made his name. The 36-year-old tight end signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Tuesday.

Graham spent his first eight seasons with the Saints, where he was a five-time Pro Bowler and a two-time All-Pro. He was one of the most dominant tight ends in the NFL during his time with the Saints, catching 73 touchdowns in 80 games.

Graham left the Saints in 2015, signing a four-year, $40 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks. He spent four seasons with the Seahawks, but he was not as productive as he was with the Saints. He caught 46 touchdowns in 64 games with the Seahawks.

Graham has not played in the NFL since 2021. He was released by the Chicago Bears after one season with the team.

Graham’s return to the Saints is a homecoming of sorts. He is still a popular figure in New Orleans, and he is expected to be a key contributor to the Saints’ offense. The Saints have a young quarterback in Jameis Winston, and Graham’s experience and playmaking ability should be a valuable asset to the team.

“I’m excited to be back home,” Graham said in a statement. “I can’t wait to get back on the field and help this team win.”

The Saints are hoping that Graham can help them return to the playoffs after missing the postseason in 2022. Graham’s return gives the Saints a dangerous weapon in the passing game, and he could be a key factor in the team’s success in 2023.
