Not saying I believe him...

but he did say it.

Just sayin'
Drew is 34. Tony Gonzalez is 36. Jimmy Graham is 27.
Tony G made $7 million this year.
Adjust that for inflation nine years from now, Jimmy, and you'll see that will pay you a sh**load of money to catch passes from someone other than Brees

I think as long as Drew is still kicking Jimmy will be a Saint.

Re: Top 5 Landing Spots for Jimmy Graham In 2014

I think it's extremely possible that Drew Brees went to Carl Nicks in 2010 or 2011, and said "bro, keep blocking for me, and I will make you the highest paid guard in the league, just watch" and then he and his agent made sure they gummed up the situation with the franchise tag, so that Brees would get the tag instead of Nicks, and Nicks could leave and get his payday somewhere else (instead of being second fiddle to Jahri Evans who already had the fat contract here at guard for the Saints, so they could never have afforded to keep Nicks anyway).

So then Nicks gives Drew a big bear hug when he breaks the passing record, and Nicks leads the Who Dat chant in the Dome in the Detroit playoff game? Why Nicks gets picked to lead the chant? Because in the locker room, they all knew it was his last time in the Dome.

And it's extremely possible that Drew said to Jimmy late last year or at the beginning of this year, "bro, you saw me play through my first Saints contract and get a big payday? How would you like to be a top 5 receiver in the NFL, how does that sound? Stick with me kid and I take you there, just keep catching balls" and then he has been feeding the ball to Jimmy ever since, running up his stats and giving him TDs...knowing that when the time comes the old players' salaries will come off the books, Drew will restructure a bit, and Jimmy will get his payday and STAY with the Saints. I think it's extremely possible that Drew has been working behind the scenes and engineering all kinds of things with this team and Loomis, whether it's bringing Sproles here or deciding which receivers to keep, which offensive players to let go.

You don't think Drew and these guys ever talk about this stuff, in private?

Re: Top 5 Landing Spots for Jimmy Graham In 2014

Honestly, I don't believe Graham is head and shoulders better than the rest of the tightends in the league, he just gets the attention that makes it that way. I mean a lot of the QBs do not even treat their tightends like the number 1 weapon which is why they are not doing what Graham is. Gresham is good, Housler is, Camerson, Thomas, Fauria, G Graham, Rudolph, Myers, Ertz, Z Miller, Cook, Reed. The difference is Brees is a good qb and targets Graham and the rest of those qbs either do not target theirs or are not good. Graham would do nothing but be a cap hit for a team who could use their money on other needs if he were not to stay. Also, injuries happen as a result of inconsistency and/or not getting enough balls thrown to. Gronk is exception as he just seems to always get hurt.
