The Seattle Seahawks are a talkative bunch, and that talk ratchets up 100% anytime they get a win.
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham found that out before the game even started when he and several Seahawks players engaged in some heated trash talk during warmups.
Graham was fired up, and you expected his normal big game. Instead Graham was almost completely shut out, and a non factor in the ballgame.
After the game the Seahawks did their talking. According to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett called Graham “soft, and the most overrated player in the league.”

It’s definitely not the way Graham wanted to go into free agency.
