The Seahawks have three players to consider extending in the next few weeks — or even months — and Pete Carroll sure made it sound like they plan to extend at least a couple of them.
In addition to his comments this week about wanting to re-sign Kam Chancellor, Carroll was effusive in praise of Jimmy Graham on Thursday — a sign that the Hawks do indeed plan to keep the star tight end beyond this coming season.
Graham made an amazing return from a torn patellar tendon last year to set team records in catches (65) and yards (923) by a tight end. He would have been the NFL comeback player of the year if not for Jordy Nelson’s stellar return from a torn ACL.
Two years after the Seahawks acquired Graham in a surprise blockbuster deal with New Orleans, the tight end finally has a full offseason with Russell Wilson. And Carroll is stoked about it.
