This is a business first and some times you have to make due with what you have.

Besides, you will never know if they can do it until you let them try to do it.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Amen... Should Ingram and Robinson split 35 carries a game our faults at receiver and Oline may just disappear ...

Olineman from Bama had a bad combine we could steal him in the second round ... We essentially would be a better Seattle with Brees at QB

No great surprise, but the Saints will use their franchise tag on tight end Jimmy Graham before Monday’s deadline, per a league source.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

10 things to know about the Jimmy Graham franchise tag | ProFootballTalk

Well, it certainly would add even more drama to Saints fans' offseason...

(excerpt)"10. Graham could choose to go year to year.

Whether Graham wins or loses the looming grievance, he could elect to not do a long-term deal, opting instead to retain the injury risk and play one year at a time. He’d receive a 20-percent raise in 2015 if tagged again, and then a 44-percent raise in 2016 or the quarterback franchise tender, whichever is greater."

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Makes good sense. Hopefully a team with a high pick gets him.

One thing that could happen is a potential team could wait till after the draft; but once the offers start in, well, we'll have another first this draft...
