Will Jimmy Graham return to form in 2013?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't see us being able to afford him if he returns to form. In the long run I guess its best if he has another down year and signs a reasonable contract. After that he can explode. If he ...

Re: Will Jimmy Graham return to form in 2013?

I don't see us being able to afford him if he returns to form. In the long run I guess its best if he has another down year and signs a reasonable contract. After that he can explode. If he doesn't learn how to hold onto the ball Im not sure I will be terribly upset if he does wind up leaving. I would rather have two Dave Thomas type TE's than one high paid TE with flashes of brilliance.

I reckon the guy shows improved form next term. I hope that he is over his injuries. He has many reasons to be motivated for a better term; sad stats last term, reckons he is worth more, Saints team need to do better. So he will show up.

everyone talking about the article saying Graham wants to be the highest paid tight end in the NFL. there's no substance to that article. it's just some online contributor who had nothing to write about and decided to speculate that's what Graham wants...it's even more ridiculous considering that he's just coming off of his worst season/reconstructive wrist surgery.

He did go on record as saying he did not ever want to play with another QB and would retire when Drew does. Hopefully he hasn't been totally corrupted by money.

Did you hear about Gonzalez's demands? 7 mill and he gets to skip camp to resign with Atlanta.

Gonzo deserves it. He should be able to get whatever conditions he wants at this point in his career. He has been playing at the highest level his entire career and is known to keep his body in emaculate shape. At his age with his work ethic and experience he doesn't need camp.

Let Gonzo, rake em over the coals, serves them right for not having a replacement ready.....

In the meantime I think we should take a real good look at Fred Davis from Washington..... Another go to TE couldn't hurt.... He's coming off of a injured season so the price shouldn't be to high... The more weapons we find for cheap the better..

We will see. I watched him in warm-ups before the game. He seldom ever dropped a pass in WARMUPS. Like I said we will see.

I totally agree with what you said however Training Camp just isn't for the benefit of Tony Gonzales. His QB and other recievers NEED to work side by side with him to get all thier timing down. If he doesn't show up to training camp it will show in the 1st few weeks of the season.
