Former Saints TE Jimmy Graham Unhappy About Raiders Trade Rumors Before Heading To Seahawks

The New Orleans Saints pulled off the most shocking trade of this offseason so far, shipping tight end Jimmy Graham off to the Seattle Seahawks for center Max Unger and a draft pick. However, there were rumors before that indicating that Graham was being shopped to the Oakland Raiders -- something he wasn't exactly happy to hear.

"At first I thought I was going to the Raiders, so I was very sad,” Graham said at a recent Seahawks charity event, via FOX Sports. “But then I heard it was Seattle and I couldn’t be any happier.”"

While Graham's comment was likely made partly in jest -- especially to a group of fans of one of the Raiders' former AFC West rivals -- the fact remains that he's went there.

If the Raiders want to pay him back for his little joke, there's two things they can do -- beat the Seahawks in the final preseason game of 2015 and JUST WIN BABY when the regular season kicks off.

That'll show him.
