The New Orleans Saints sent shockwaves through the NFL by trading away tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks, and a seven-year-old girl was captured on video being upset about the trade.

Graham was traded to the Seahawks for center Max Unger and a first-round pick.
Lexia Woods, the young Saints fan, was contacted by Graham himself though as he sent her a message and invited her to attend the Seahawks’ 2015 home opener.
Although Woods is a Saints fan, she said that wherever the tight end goes is where she goes. She admitted that Graham reaching out to her made her feel better though.
