Free agency, the kickoff to the “New Year” in the NFL.
Every year seems to be more exciting than the last and this year did not disappoint. Arguably, the most shocking move was the trade involving Saints tight end Jimmy Graham going to Seattle along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for Seahawks center Max Unger and their first-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft.
NFL Insider Jay Glazer broke the news and almost instantly social media went berserk. A day later, Graham is still trending nationally as the tweets continue to pour in.
The best of the reactions though came from a young member of Who Dat nation (see above video), who had a message for the Saints and Mr. Graham.
Graham and his former quarterback Drew Brees took to Twitter for their reaction to the news. Since the trade, Graham has also changed his Twitter bio to “Traded.”
Thank you whodat nation & the city for all your support, love & hospitality. And to all my brothers I've played with over the years. Thank u
