What happens if the Saints decide to franchise Jimmy Graham?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brees will almost certainly restructure his deal. Will Smith will be gone, maybe Harper too. That's about 22-25 million right there. (cutting Smith saves you nearly 12 million on its own) Loomis will get it done. He always does. Let's ...

Loomis will get it done. He always does. Let's face it there will be hell to pay down the road. In 4-5 years Drew will retire and they'll have to blow the whole thing up and start over. Until then, everything is good.

It is still way too early to talk Jimmy Graham, other than he will be kept. Other than that we have a boat load of FAs next year, then there is the draft, etc... The possible scenarios for making room for Jimmy are as abundant as the scenarios that could play out right now for who gets Wild Card spots this post season.

I want to put Jimmy Graham into perspective this season. We all look at him as a TE Phenom. The Best TE in the game.

This season he is the best receiver in the game period...

#1 in yardage for all Recievers and tied for 2nd with Dez Bryant for TDs.

Re: What happens if the Saints decide to franchise Jimmy Graham?

You read it here first! This 5 - 0 start was so Payton would know he still has it. The Saints tank the rest of the year and end up 5 - 11. They Trade Brees ( a declining player, remember that statement?) to the team with the worst record. It frees up a zillion dollars in cap room. We resign Graham and lock him in for life. Manziel wants out of A&M........... see where this is going?

After all he is a beast and trusts in Spags!!! I can still hear the echos of drafts past............Vince Young, Vince Young, Vince Young!

Oh yes, if Graham is franchised THE WORLD ENDS!!! we all know that!!

They are going to have to pay the man. Too bad these guys demand so much.

Re: What happens if the Saints decide to franchise Jimmy Graham?

He is worth the cash in our system.

He is a great player but would he be great if he played for Andy, Jeff, John or Jim?

Look at Sproles.
Great player but the Chargers kicked him to the curb.
Was he great in San Diego?

Myself, I can not handle another holdout.

Jimmy will probably agree to anything in order to keep catching balls from Drew.......well, almost anything.
