Doug Baldwin: 'Jimmy Graham will improve Marshawn Lynch'

Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin believes that Jimmy Graham will help improve Marshawn Lynch this season.

Seattle Seahawks star Doug Baldwin believes that tight end Jimmy Graham will help strengthen the team's offense, particularly helping running back Marshawn Lynch.

Graham arrived following a trade deal with the New Orleans Saints, and Baldwin is confident that his threat in the red zone will be a big improvement for the team.

"He can be an offense completely amongst himself. His ability to be a big target in the red zone, his athleticism is really strange for a guy his size," he told KSPN-AM.

"Not only is he going to be able to open things up for myself but also for Marshawn as well, and opening more things up for Marshawn is going to be devastating to the defenses we face."

The Seahawks receiver reiterated that Graham will help create space for Lynch, while also adding a blocking presence to the offensive line too.
