Russell Wilson: Jimmy Graham fits great with Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks fans aren’t the only ones excited about this offseason’s addition of superstar tight end Jimmy Graham — quarterback Russell Wilson is excited, too.

“He looks like a big kid, I’ll say that,” Wilson said Wednesday on Q/13-TV. “Jimmy Graham looks unbelievable out there. He’s really fast, catches the ball really well.”

Wilson just spent a week with Graham and numerous other Seahawks for a training and team-building session in Maui. The trip was well-publicized via social media, and appears to have been a healthy mix of conditioning and fun.

Graham, 28, joined the Seahawks in a March trade with the Saints. The deal sent center Max Unger and a 2015 first-round draft pick to New Orleans, and Seattle also received a fourth-round selection in return.

“Just to have (Graham) down in Maui I think was a great opportunity for him to really bond, and for us just to — as a team — to just really experience everything together,” Wilson said on Q/13. “And he fits in great. It’s going to be a great experience for him, but also for us as a team.

“I can’t wait for this season coming up. I know we’re all really pumped up. And each guy on the team is getting fired up and ready to go.”
