More than an hour before kickoff, the fun had started in Seattle. According to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham got into a pregame skirmish with several members of the Seahawks on the playing surface at CenturyLink Field. Graham reportedly exchanged words during pregame warmups with Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin. Graham then ripped a knit cap from Irvin’s head.
