The New Orleans Saints have agreed to trade TE Jimmy Graham and their 4th round pick to the Seahawks for Max Unger and the 31st pick overall, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
DB’s Take: WOW. I didn’t see this trade coming. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense just added one of the NFL’s truly elite weapons. The Saints have been in a widely known salary cap nightmare, so this move will surely help them there. New Orleans is now armed with the 13th and 31st overall picks that they can package together to move up in round one or hold onto to replenish a roster that has suffered some talent casualties in the last 48 hours. This trade is yet another example of how silly it can be to spend a lot of time on mock drafts before the free agency period begins.
