Prior to the NFC divisional round match up between the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints, New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham got into a scuffle with some Seahawks players at midfield. Unfortunately for the Saints and Graham, that was some of the most action that we saw from the star tight end all game.
During the Saints lackluster offensive performance, Graham was able to haul in just one catch for eight yards. The Seahawks defense turned him in to a non-factor.
After the game, Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett shared his thoughts on Graham and they were not very flattering. As far as Bennett is concerned, Graham is a cannot handle physical play and Bennett believes that he is the most overrated player in the NFL.
From Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report:
Seahawks’ Michael Bennett called Jimmy Graham soft and the most overrated player in the NFL.

After seeing all of the trash-talking between Graham and the Seahawks players before the game and then looking at his final stat line, it is safe to believe that the Seattle defenders were able to get in his head.
