Jimmy Graham worked hard to improve in off-season

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham admits that he worked hard in the off-season to improve his game, despite recording an All-Pro season in 2013.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has revealed that he has been working hard in the off-season to improve against press coverage.

The 27-year-old was shut out against the New England Patriots when he was held to zero catches at Gillette Stadium, which was a rare poor match in his All-Pro season.

"It's something that we've worked on this camp, shoring up some of those things and being ready for when teams do that," Graham told ESPN.

"And Drew [Brees] being the quarterback he is, he finds the open guy. He doesn't key on one guy or two guys, he finds the open man."

The Saints face the Atlanta Falcons in their 2014 season opener tomorrow.
