Jimmy Graham was not happy about initial Raiders rumors
Jimmy Graham thought he might be on the move this offseason.
He just didn't want to end up in the Bay Area with the Oakland Raiders.
“At first I thought I was going to the Raiders, so I was very sad,” Graham said at a charity event with his new team, the Seahawks. “But then I heard it was Seattle and I couldn’t be any happier.”
Pairing Graham with Amari Cooper would've been awe-inducing for Raiders fans. But Graham sounds like he would've been anything but enthusiastic about the move.
It's a strange coincidence that both the Raiders and Seahawks ended up with former Miami Hurricanes. Oakland drafted a player many consider to be Miami's best tight end since Graham in third-round pick Clive Walford.
