Seattle Seahawks' recently acquired tight end Jimmy Graham said Tuesday that while his persistent right shoulder injury is now fully healed, playing with the injury last season amounted to "10 weeks of terror," according to The Seattle Times.
The Seattle Seahawks' recently acquired tight end Jimmy Graham said Tuesday that the 2014 shoulder injury that haunted him last season is finally healthy, and that playing with the injury in 2014 amounted to "10 weeks of terror," according to The Seattle Times.
Graham, who has taken on an increasingly popular role during a short time with Seattle, was acquired by the Seahawks in a Mar. 10 trade that sent center Max Unger to New Orleans.
Graham also noted Tuesday in his first address to local media members that the closeness among team members was similar to that of being in college, and that his time with the team thus far has exceeded his expectations.
"I'm 270 pounds. I can block anyone I want to...you want to go right now?" Graham even joked to The Tacoma News Tribune.
Graham injured his shoulder early in the 2014 season and played through the injury for the rest of the year. He declined to have surgery on the shoulder at the end of last season.
His production was limited in 2014 compared to former seasons. The tight end caught 85 passes for 889 yards in 2014, both of which were his lowest output since 2010.
