Jimmy Graham doesn’t seem happy with his role in Seattle’s offense

Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday night’s loss in Green Bay, and afterward he didn’t seem happy about it.

Graham avoided the media after the game, and Michael Silver of NFL Media, who tried and failed to get Graham to answer some questions, writes that Graham “clearly wasn’t thrilled.” Silver suspects that Graham didn’t want to talk to reporters because if he said what he really felt, he’d say something negative about what’s going on in Seattle’s offense.

After the Seahawks gave up a first-round draft pick and starting center Max Unger to acquire Graham in a trade with the Saints, it seemed that Seattle would make its passing game revolve around Graham. But in reality, Graham has been a non-factor. Through two games he has seven catches for 62 yards and one touchdown, putting him on pace to have his lowest statistical totals since his rookie year.

It’s only two games into the season and not time to overreact. Maybe Graham will turn things around and become the All-Pro in Seattle that he was in New Orleans. But so far, this trade isn’t looking like a great deal for the Seahawks.
