The Seattle Seahawks have quietly gone about their business this off-season, becoming a better team.

Yes they pulled off a blockbuster trade to bring in Jimmy Graham from the New Orleans Saints, but apart from that the Seahawks have flown under the radar as they look to go one better in 2015 and actually win the Super Bowl for the second time in three years.

And according to Doug Baldwin, their new star tight end is fitting in so well that Seahawks fans have a real reason to be optimistic for the season ahead.

Unbelievable Graham

Baldwin appeared on 710 ESPN in Seattle earlier this week, where he sounded full of confidence about how much better the Seahawks offense is going to be this year with the All-Pro Graham among their ranks.

"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," Baldwin said. "The way he moves it's unbelievable. He's gonna be able to do a lot of things for us offensively."

Baldwin also went on to say that installing Graham into their offense was going to be easy because of how many things Graham can do.

“The beautiful thing about Jimmy is that we can just plug him in and play him into our offense,” Baldwin added. “We don’t have to necessarily design things around for him because he’s such a talented player he can just fit into the role of tight end in our offense as it is."

Baldwin also believes that the Seahawks not only filled a pass catching void by bringing in Graham, but they also manage to strengthen their biggest asset, Marshawn Lynch.

"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," Baldwin said.
