The Seahawks have been looking for a tight end, and last week waived veteran Zack Miller who spent most of last season injured. There was no clue that Seattle was looking at a deal for Graham, who is due a boatload of cash in the form of a $5 million bonus in five days. That's part of the $40 million deal he signed with the Saints a year ago.
Seattle should be able to handle the cost, even after signing Marshawn Lynch to a two-year extension. Quarterback Russell Wilson is still under his rookie deal and will play at bargain rates in 2015, but could be working on a long term contract.
