Bears TE Jimmy Graham walked away 'unscathed' from rollover car accident

Much like Tiger Woods, Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham experienced a similarly terrifying rollover car accident this week.

On Thursday morning, Graham's vehicle rolled over in Miami after he swerved to avoid a car blocking the road. The 34-year-old avoided any significant and life-threatening injuries and took to Twitter to explain what happened. 

According to Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640, Graham is not considered at fault for what happened and did not want to be looked over by first responders after the accident.

The 34-year-old is entering the final year of the two-year, $16 million contract he signed with the Bears last offseason. 

In 2020, Graham caught 50 passes for 456 yards and eight touchdowns. He'll be expected to put up similar, if not better, numbers in 2021.
