Seahawks Defensive End Michael Bennett Calls Jimmy Graham “Overrated” [VIDEO]
Outside of his pre-game tussle with a few Seahawks players, Jimmy Graham wasn’t much of a factor in the Saints 23-15 loss to Seattle in the NFC Divisional playoff game this past Saturday. Was Graham’s performance reason enough to dub the Saints tight end “overrated?”
Apparently, Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennet seems to think so as he called Graham “overrated” in a TV interview with Q13 FOX in Seattle after the game.
While it is true that Graham was pretty much a no-show in the game, having only one catch for a handful of meaningless yards; he managed to snag 86 catches in the regular season for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns making him the top ranked tight end in the league.
It should be noted that beyond just his tight end position, Graham ranked amongst the top 15 of ALL receivers in the league in both receptions and yards, and held the top spot in touchdown grabs.
Hell, while we’re counting, the 27-year-old has pulled in over 300 catches for nearly 4,000 yards for over 40 touchdowns in his (very short) four year career.
Pretty far from overrated if you ask me. But I’m just a biased Saints fan, right?
