Saints Tight End Jimmy Graham on Pace to Break NFL Record

The Saints' Jimmy Graham is on schedule to have the best season for a tight end in NFL history, even ahead of his record-breaking 2011 performance though three games.

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham put up more ridiculous stats during the Saints' 31-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals, including 9 catches for 134 yards and two touchdowns. His numbers through three games this season put him well ahead of where he was at this point in 2011 by more than 100 yards receiving.

Here's a look at how Graham's performance so far in 2013 compares to his record-breaking performance in 2011. Will he keep this up? Will this be Graham's best season of his career?
