Davis: Bucs drafted Barron specifically because of Graham

“We took [safety] Mark Barron in the first round simply because of Jimmy Graham,” Davis said of the team’s decision with the eighth overall pick that year.

The Saints being 4-0 versus the Bucs isn't because of Graham vs Barron.

Its because we're the better team.
