Re: Top 5 Landing Spots for Jimmy Graham In 2014

It's going to get complicated. The tea leaves say he will stay put, I think we all agree on that but there is still a lot of time left and a lot can happen. It's a sham article without question, putting the cart way before the horse but in terms of franchise tag yay or nay, classification TE/WR, I think there is some wiggle room to have a serious discussion.

Re: Top 5 Landing Spots for Jimmy Graham In 2014

Isn't Jimmy the one that made a comment along the lines of,

I'll be playing football as long as Drew Brees, and the day he quits is the day I retire.

But $$ talks and bull**** walks, so....

Sort of, he said that as long as Brees is his QB, he'll be here. He didn't mention the retiring part.

He's also a young man. Injuries can make one start thinking about what's best long term financially. I would want to play for Brees as well but you know his agent will push him hard if it comes down to money. There is also not much loyalty in the NFL. It comes down to money almost every single time.

Lets be honest if the front office didnt think they could clear the cap space for him they would mostly likely have took the hit and traded him.
What would you be looking at two 1st's or a 1st and 2nd

talking heads get paid to write, broadcast and spew whatever drivel they can get paid for.

the trick is not to take them seriously.

I remember Jimmy saying he would retire when Brees is done playing ball because he doesn't want anyone else throwing to him...

We will see how committed he is come negotiation time but I think he will be fair.

Re: Top 5 Landing Spots for Jimmy Graham In 2014

I knew it was lying around that ol' internet somewhere...

“I told Drew that whenever he decides to retire, I’m going to retire,’’ Graham said. “I’ll never play with another quarterback. I’m really serious about that.’’

Not saying I believe him...

but he did say it.

Just sayin'
