The New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks may be striking the biggest trade of the 2015 year.
Multiple media reports have the Saints trading All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks for Pro Bowl center Max Unger and a first-round draft pick. This comes as a massive shock, as there was nothing publically reported to suggest the Saints were ready to ship Graham away after signing him to a big extension last year.

Jimmy Graham signed a 4-year, $40M deal last year. Has a $5M roster bonus due in 2 days. Clock is ticking for a #Saints deal.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 10, 2015
You can go ahead and put Seattle down as a Super bowl contender this coming season if you already didn't. Unger is a Pro Bowl-caliber center, but Graham is one of the best players in football when he's at his best, something he wasn't enough of in 2015.
