Best Value In the NFL? Jimmy Graham

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Wow, I never would have thought Graham was making that kind of money, but after looking at his rookie stats, I see it. But what a breakout year his sophomore season, eh? Now he looks like the biggest sleeper find ...

Wow, I never would have thought Graham was making that kind of money, but after looking at his rookie stats, I see it. But what a breakout year his sophomore season, eh? Now he looks like the biggest sleeper find in the league. He deserves any contract re-negotiation he can get.

I think I brought this up in one of the MANY Nicks Colston Threads.....

Funny how Colston isn't mentioned in this...

With this many free agents we may have a tough time trying to renegotiate his contract this season.

This is a good point; but part of the reason why Graham has been so effective is because of the synergy of BOTH he and Colston...

I'd hate to lose Nicks, but that will be alot of money tied up in Guards if Nicks becomes the highest paid guard in the NFL...

But we value guards more than tackles, so I prefer to think of it as having a lot of money tied up in the 2 best O-linemen in the NFL. I don't have a problem with that just because they play OG.

The Saints have a reputation of taking care of their players. The players know this. Jimmy had one great year and we're all thinking, hoping and praying he keeps it up. This year we have some pressing contracts that need taking care of. We all know who they are, Brees, Nicks and Colston. Plus we're going to need some space to sign a couple FA's and our draft picks so that we can position the team to win at least a couple more Championships. I think JG knows this and wants to be a part of a team that wins a couple rings.

The cap will increase next year, and if JG has another stellar season, after the smoke clears, I think you'll see JG with a very nice contract extension. I'm not worried about it and I don't think he is either. JG came up the hard way and has a good head on his shoulders and with the mentoring I believe he's getting from Drew, he's going to set himself up for life and he just may retire when Drew does. He'll be able to after the Saints extend his contract after the 2012 season. Pat's just trying to stir the pot.
