He isn't going anywhere. He will be a Saint next year with a new contract or a franchise tag salary.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Trade him to an AFC team with the stipulation they can't in turn trade him to the Falcons. Just like the Packers did with Favre to the Jets. The pick they got from the Jets (a 3rd) allowed them to trade up with New England and select Clay Matthews! Not a bad deal for a "one and done" with the Jets.

You can not trade that which you do not have.

He's not under contract. Don't think you can trade a player you don't have under contract.

He is a Free Agent in 19 days, not much market for 18 days of Jimmy Graham in the off season. His contract is up.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

1. "Neither Sexton, the Saints nor the union are talking about what Graham might do yet." (until that happens its speculation on top of speculation)

2. Suggs is not a precedent. There was no ruling from an arbitrator.

3. The only statement that actually matters is one that has been made by Jimmy graham him self : "That's not for me to decide," Graham said at an adidias charity event with New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Gordon in the French Quarter. "I'm going to do, and I'm going to play, whatever I'm asked to do. It's that simple."

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Maybe some good news.

Adam Schefter reporting that the salary cap could be rising to $130ml.

Isn't it at $123ml now? That's not too much help.
