The New Orleans Saints have reportedly made a contract offer to star tight end Jimmy Graham, according to Pro Football Talk. They have not received a response from Graham's camp, the website said.

Graham, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, earned $1.9 million in his first three seasons and is scheduled to earn $1.323 million this season. While Graham has waited to sign a new contract, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski signed a five-year, $54 million extension last year.

They will pay him. Guys like Vilma, Harper, DLP and Greer just won't be with the team in 2014. The Saints will have to continue to find good players in the draft and in UDFA's.

As long as he's the highest paid he should take it. Waiting it out taking the hardest hits on the field is shaking hands with financial danger.

Unlessit's a really crappy offer, extending an offer this early shows good faith from the FO, since there's always the risk of injury during the season.

Maybe Brees could take a cut to help?

Brees will fund his own future success by donating $5M a year of his salary to the Keep Jimmy Graham Foundation.

Oh, no ... huge distraction ... I think JG should get paid as much as the next fan, but the season's "on", Saints are 3-0, leading the NFC South and captain's of their own destiny ... don't blow the momentum! (or at least keep it on the downlow, IMO).
