The Seahawks addressed both issues Tuesday, on the first day of the NFL free-agency period, by agreeing to acquire Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham from the New Orleans Saints for center Max Unger. The trade, which is contingent on Graham passing a physical on Wednesday, also includes the Seahawks giving the Saints their first-round pick in next month’s NFL Draft, while the Seahawks will get a fourth-rounder from the Saints.

“We would like to thank Max for his leadership and the role he has played in helping establish our current championship culture,” Seahawks Executive VP/General Manager John Schneider said in a release issued by the team.

We are thrilled to have an opportunity to acquire a player of Jimmy Graham’s caliber, and will remain relentless in our pursuit of sustaining that championship culture.”Boom! Check it out
