Green Bay Packers Tight End Jimmy Graham is usually known for getting up in the red zone, but this trip he went really high.
Like sky high.

During the off-season – in addition to working out daily – he wakes up at 5:30 am to take pilot lessons. Having attained a single-engine license, Graham is now working on his multiengine and commercial licenses. “You never know how long you’ll last in the NFL,” he says, “but I can fly for the rest of my life.” At Kendall-Tamiami airport, a private hangar with 20-foot-tall white concrete walls holds the following items: his $760,000 plane, a parachute monogrammed with his jersey number, 80, two Harley-Davidson tooled-leather saddlebags, a bamboo-faced Bluetooth speaker playing Nirvana, a giant plastic jug of protein-shake powder, a stack of Flying magazines, a sleek 1970s Herman Miller airport bench he bought on eBay, and a giant American flag.
Yes, the NFL’s elite tight end has a taste for adrenaline.
