Pete Carroll: 'It'll take all we have to stop Jimmy Graham'

Jimmy Graham is pinpointed as a major threat by Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll ahead of their game with the New Orleans Saints.

Head coach Pete Carroll has admitted that he is well aware of the threat Jimmy Graham poses to his Seattle Seahawks side.

New Orleans Saints tight end Graham is enjoying an excellent campaign, having caught 65 catches for 946 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Ahead of the meeting between the two NFC heavyweights on Monday night, Carroll spoke highly of Graham, stating that his team will have to be on top of their game if they are to stop him passing the 1,000-yard mark during the match.

Carroll told reporters: "It takes everything that we have to slow a guy like Jimmy Graham down. Drew Brees knows that he can throw the ball at him, with coverage all over him and he can still make plays.

"He really is a fast guy as well. They totally know how to use his talents. The most important part is that Brees can get the ball to him. So we have to cover him in multiple ways on Monday."

The Seahawks currently lead the NFC West with a 10-1 record.
