Jets | Graham Adjusting to NFL Football

NewYorkJets.com reports New York Jets rookie P Ben Graham has been interested in trying to make it to the NFL since 1997, when he was midway through his Australian Rules Football career. "Since 1997 I have shown a keen interest in the NFL and in the offseason I got used to the different balls, learned the rules, and watched as many games as I could," Graham, 31, said. "I even came over to the states and went to games, so it's been an eight year process." Graham added the biggest adjustment to the NFL game has been the fact that he doesn't have to so much on the field. "In Australian rules football every player has to do everything," he said. "They have to run, they have to mark and they have to tackle. Here it is so specific."
