New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan believes that his team face a big challenge facing New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham.

Rex Ryan has said that preparing to face Jimmy Graham will be a "huge challenge" for the New York Jets.

The New Orleans Saints tight end has recorded 630 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in the first seven games of the season.

The Jets head coach told reporters: "That guy is a unique cat now. Graham has the speed of a wide receiver, the size of an offensive tackle, so it's a huge challenge for anybody that's asked to do that."

Linebacker Calvin Pace added: "It's crazy because Graham's basically a wide receiver, he just happens to be 6'7". It's a tough matchup. It's like who do you put on him? I don't want to guard him."

The Jets are second in their division with a 4-4 record, while the Saints top the NFC South.
