Re: Saints' Watson to make more than Graham

We will see if Jimmy is going to play out his contract or not. No matter what, an extensions needs to be done on this kid ASAP. I know we have zero cap room, but hopefully Loomis has something up his sleeve. Regardless, Jimmy has out played his contract. That goes without say. And the sooner we can lock him up long term the better.

Re: Saints' Watson to make more than Graham

Jimmy will get his deal. You can't pay everyone at one time. He is under contract and during the year they will start talks and at the beginning of next year he will have a new contract along the lines of Gronk, Hernandez and Gonzales. He's been in the league only 3 years, he will get his money next contract. After last year, he has no business even thinking about holding out.

Pat Snatchstinkus has so little dignity left his only validation comes from dupes rehashing his "reporting".

Stop clicking on his crap.

Re: Saints' Watson to make more than Graham

Jimmy Graham is probably my favorite on the Saints...

that said, he should honor his rookie contract through term...

if Graham and agent wants out of it early - there should be a discount with cap friendly terms...

and Graham should honor that contract through its term...

when players like Will Smith, Led Ellis and Roman Harper are willing to pay back money for not performing......then rookies who "outplay" their contract could be eligible for early arbitration or outright contract extensions...

Re: Saints' Watson to make more than Graham

Not worried. He sees teammates on his team play through their contracts quietly without complaining, and get paid well when it's time to renew (Brees, Colston, Evans). He sees guys on his team play quietly through their low contracts and move on to get big paydays elsewhere (Nicks, Bushrod) . He has seen guys on his team bicker, cause disturbances, get in trouble, or complain vocally about things, and he sees them get either shipped out into oblivion, benched or cut out of the coaching discussions (Reggie Bush, Jeremy Shockey, Chris "the coaches aren't talking to me" Ivory). That's why I'm not worried. The culture of this team (set by Payton and Drew Brees, who some people still seem to hate even though he set the tone for this) is to be a man about it, and play through your current contract, crying is for babies. Those who don't follow that dictum, who don't follow that system, they don't last here, and as we've seen time and again, the life outside the Saints doesn't always turn out for the better.
