New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will be joining Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon and Miami Dolphins kicker Brandon Fields on the next NFL-USO tour in the Middle East.

Graham is sure to be well-received by the troops since he is probably the most well known tight end in the league.
Fields has been with the Dolphins since 2007 and was a 2014 Pro Bowler and a second team All-Pro selection.
Garcon finished last year with more than 1,300 yards and five touchdowns. He said he is looking forward to meeting the troops face-to-face.
“It’s an honor to go over and visit the troops in their environment, not only to see how they’re doing but also to appreciate what they’re doing to keep us safe back in America.”, said Garçon . “I’m so proud to be a part of this event and to be able to thank the real heroes in person.”
The NFL and USO have worked together to organize overseas morale-building visits for 48 years.
