Saints DE Cameron Jordan Tries Recruiting Jimmy Graham Back to New Orleans

The recruiting game is on!

With the New Orleans Saints lacking another threatening receiving option in the passing game opposite Michael Thomas, there has been plenty of rumblings about the Saints having interest in Jarvis Landry and others to fill that gap. Another name that Saints fans have heard of? Jimmy Graham.

Graham had a great career in New Orleans, highlighted by a 12 TD, 1215 receiving yard season in 2013. After getting traded to Seattle before the 2014 season, Graham has averaged less than 700 yards and 6 receiving TDs a season. Graham never found the success in Seattle as he had in New Orleans, and he’s looking for a new home.

One New Orleans Saints player, DE Cam Jordan, thinks Jimmy should return back to NOLA. It all started with the innocent “you up?” Tweet.

Then, that forced Jimmy into a response.

And now Cam was free to pounce:

Saints players have been vocal on social media in trying to recruit players like Malcolm Butler, Tyrann Mathieu, Jarvis Landry, and now Jimmy Graham (all with ties to the Saints or New Orleans).

Time will tell if Cam is a good salesman.
