    Originally a third round pick in the 2010 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints, Graham attended the University of Miami where he played basketball for four seasons before playing football in his final year. 

    Graham and fellow tight end Luke Willson were both unrestricted free agents heading into the offseason for the Seahawks. Currently, Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoops are the only tight ends under contract for the Seahawks heading into next season.
