Seahawks HC Pete Carroll explained that they’re “disappointed” by their inability to get TE Jimmy Graham involved in their offense over the first two weeks of the season.
“I’m disappointed,” Carroll said, via ESPN Seattle. “Because we really have had the intent, just like you would think, exactly like you guys think, like everybody thinks. We want him to be a big part of the offense.”
Carroll added that Graham is probably just as frustrated as anyone about the situation.
“I think he is. I think he’s a competitor, he wants the ball, he wants to help us win. I don’t think there’s any question about it. I would feel that, too,” Carroll said. “He’s worked hard, he’s great about it, he wants to do everything he can to help us. I don’t have any doubt about that.”
