The Chicago Bears Jimmy Graham is known for his sky-high leaping ability, but he takes things to a whole new level during the off-season.
In the Whistle's latest "I Could Do That" episode, the five-time Pro Bowl tight end goes through a day of training and a series of jump and in-air executions with the Army Golden Knights, some of the most experienced skydivers in the world.
"When I was young I always thought I would be a pilot" says Graham. Pointing to his childhood growing up on military bases, he says "I could hear the big jets going by or the helicopters, and always wished that was me."
Well Jimmy gets his shot. With amazing access, this video lets you feel Jimmy's tension as he flies for his first jump and all the planning needed to execute the in-air plan. The viewer gets a good understanding of the discipline required to nail these wild and acrobatic jumps.
