Saints veteran Jimmy Graham may not be done playing in the NFL

As the 2024 season inches closer, veteran Saints tight end Jimmy Graham hasn’t exactly closed the door on his NFL career.

The former Pro Bowler is training to row 1,000 kilometers across the Arctic Ocean next summer in hopes of setting a world record. However, Graham hasn’t shunned the idea of continuing to play football.

“I think anything is possible,” Graham said when asked if he could play football and train to row across the ocean as well via ESPN. “Right now I’m certainly enjoying how my body feels as far as my joints and everything.

“Last year I think was difficult for all of us. There were a lot of things that went down and having such a good team and not making the playoffs. I think obviously the team is stronger than it was last year even. It’s going to be obviously interesting for me to be home watching, if that’s the case. …

“I know a lot of people were shocked I came back at my age and thought that I couldn’t do anything. But I know that every time I was on that field and every opportunity, I made the best of it. And I think I still showed people that I still have the athleticism to get open and score touchdowns.”

Graham signed a one-year contract with the New Orleans Saints last offseason. In that time, he recorded six catches, four of which resulted in touchdowns.

There isn’t pressure for Graham to extend his NFL career one more season, which will likely be with the Saints. Time will tell if he decides to play or finally step into retirement.
