This is frustrating...

We gave up significant draft picks; though he was key in the Superbowl Run...

But this was coming; we knew it; it is done...

Jimmy Graham...don't blow it...

Too fragile for his desire. I looked for him every down, and so did defenses.

Best of luck. you're always a Saint, Jeremy.

I don't think he will. That kid will be a star. He's already hella-good, and he's only going to get better.

You never know... it's possible we re-sign him at a discounted rate. It's not like his market value is at an all time high and I can't see anyone paying him a good value salary given his production and inability to stay healthy. That said, it's Jimmy Graham time baby! I'm excited.

Man i can't believe it, i knew it was coming though.

Shockey; Your fire and intensity was evident as soon as you caught yor first pass as a saint and bowled over a couple of Buc Defenders.
Everyone here will thank you for your production and basically having the tenacity that this Offense needed.
Best of luck, you were one of my favourite players shockey.
