Jimmy Graham contract

Anyone know what Graham's contract looks like and for how long? He's on pace to have a better season than most receivers which brings me to my next question...if he is under contract for next season, Graham does not remind me of one of those guys who is going to "honor" the base contract for another season. So if he does get a new contract, what kind of money we looking at?

Discussion?

No really...the guy is on pace to have 100 rec 1400 yrds and 10 TDs. That's one helluva season for a TE. How much are they gonna pay this man? And when?

If things continue, he won't be considered one of the best, he will be the best...by a longshot. He's going to make the PB and likely break a couple of records this season. If that happens it will establish a higher bar for TEs. They will pay it and it will be painful.

I'd like to see him do it for another season before we make him one of the, if not the highest, paid TE in the league. I do agree he doesn't look like the type that will play out his contract... he's in for a big payday. Do it for another year and then let's sit down at the table. We'll probably take the same approach to Graham as we've been doing with Nicks. You know you're going to get that fat contract... just show you are consistent and wait your turn.

I like Jimmy Graham and what he brings and does for the Saints. But the guy can't be talking better contracts already. He's ran a few wrong routes this year which in a few cases led to interceptions. No doubt we need him but play a few more years and become a Tony Gonzalez and he'll have better bargaining power.

"New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Wednesday that the club has agreed to terms with tight end Jimmy Graham, their 2010 third-round draft choice, on a four-year contract "

Saints agree to terms with Jimmy Graham, Patrick Ramsey

Rotoworld says "7/28/2010: Signed a four-year, $2.455 million contract. The deal included a $665,140 signing bonus. 2011: $405,000, 2012: $490,000, 2013: $575,000, 2014: Free Agent"

So I don't think we need to worry about him anytime soon. He is in the bag for the time being.

The front office is not stupid. They realize what we have. As long as he stays healthy he will be THE force to be reckoned with at TE
