This is big for two reasons. Firstly, what will this do to his draft stock? He could have entered the 2009 draft but decided against it, despite being ranked as a sure fire top 20 pick.
Secondly, how does this affect Sam Bradford? We're still none the wiser as to how long he'll be out with a shoulder injury. If he returned in 2-4 weeks, he'll be without his No1 pass catching target. Without Gresham Saturday, Bradford toiled for a measly 96 yards in one half - a long way from the kind of numbers he posted last year to win the Heisman. If he does return soon, losing Gresham could hurt the quarter backs stock.
Gresham remains an unlikely choice for the Seahawks regardless. With John Carlson firmly planted as the team's long term option at tight end, taking another with a high draft pick would be deemed something of an unnecessary luxury. There could also be a red flag - he was arrested in April for failing to pay a seat belt citation.
