Best Value In the NFL? Jimmy Graham
 
1 Attachment(s)
He remains under contract through 2013. Perhaps more than any other player in the NFL, Graham has outperformed his contract and that generally leads to a new deal.

In 2011, only his second year in the NFL, Graham had one of the best seasons ever by a tight end. He caught 99 passes for 1,310 yards and 11 touchdowns. Heís 25 and heís only going to get better.

When you look at Grahamís production and potential, itís easy to make a case heís the NFLís most underpaid tight end. Heck, he might be the most underpaid player in the NFL, period.

Grahamís still playing on his rookie contract, which was standard for the third-round pick he was in 2010. But heís scheduled to make only $540,000 in 2012 and $575,000 in 2013.

His production outways his pay by far. He continues to be this good he will get a very nice contract. I wish I could say the same thing about some players on the D side, 4 are over paid for their lack of production, seems to me someone's priorities need to change.

Jimmy is the man. He will get paid for it to. Yes it's too bad its like that on the d side.
lets hope this yr will bring a nice change on that side of the ball.

Pretty soon they will have to pay him more money or he will hold out. He's not going to play for that. He's very underpaid. You prove it on the field. And he has. He wouldn't go as late as he was picked if you did the draft over again. That's for sure.

Another reason to seriously think about how much to pay Colston. Jimmy will be the highest paid TE in the NFL in 2 years.

I'd hate for that to be with some another team because we have so much money tied up in Colston.

People are now somewhat getting my point. On the other hand how much longer do you think our "window" with Brees and the current roster will be open?

Well if everytime a decent player comes up for contract renewal and we have the ridiculous "pay the man" mentality it won't be very long.

I have a pretty good feeling this years rookie class is going to have superstar in it as well . Here is the last 6 years draft picks who have made an impact on the team in one way or another:
2011:
Mark Ingram, Cam Jordan
2010:
Charles Brown, Jimmy Graham, Patrick Robinson
2009:
Malcolm Jenkins, Thomas Morstead
2008:
Sedrick Ellis. Tracy Porter, Carl Nicks
2007:
Robert Meachem, Jermon Bushrod
2006:
Roman Harper, Jahri Evans, Marques Colston
March 14 2006- The Saints agreed to terms with former San Diego Chargers QB Drew Brees to a five-year contract
Jan. 18 2006- Sean Payton was named as the 14th head coach in club history
This history suggests that we will have 3 standout rookies this year based solely on statistics. Each year we have had atleast one standout player though. I wonder who it will be this year? Donnie Fletcher, Mychal Kendricks, Jack Crawford, Andrew Datko, Michael Brewster, Tyler Nielsen.
