"Here’s why:

1) With Jermichael Finley headed to free agency and his medical prognosis uncertain anyway, Green Bay has a need at the position...

2) GM Ted Thompson has the ability to pay Graham...

3) Thompson has earned enough goodwill — including a title in 2010 — and proven a savvy enough talent evaluator that he can probably sell the move to his fan base..."

This would be a complete deviation for how the Pack builds their team. Doubtful in my opinion.

Definitely not the way Thompson runs the peoples' ship...

But, the writer is making a good case for such a move...

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

This just happened...

My fourteen year old daughter sees things so clearly...

She saw Saints/Black & Gold browser on my monitor and asked if I was discussing Jimmy Graham...

"yes," I said.

She then inquired why everyone was arguing over and what the big difference was about Tight End/Wide Receiver...

"$5 million," I said...

So then Abby asked what's the difference in a Tight End or Receiver...

I replied simply, "a Tight End lines up on the line, blocks and also goes out for passes; a wide receiver just goes out for passes..."

She said "Daddy, I've never seen Jimmy Graham block anyone."



True Story.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Is it really ‘beyond dumb’ to give up two first-round picks for Jimmy Graham? | For The Win

Ignore article title - this article looks at whether a team would be better off with Graham or two (2) first round picks...

Interesting debate...

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

I can only see a team making a move after the draft. With such a high calibre of player this year teams will want to wait.
Take the Clowns for example if this was 2013 draft and Gonzalez had just retired you know they would be willing to give up the 28-30th(cant remember) pick to take the best offensive weapon in the division. Its different giving up a top 6 pick for him. Wait till after the draft and make a offer and dont loose picks for 12 months.

Agree you're right about the post-draft grab for Graham...that's why hoping we select Notre Dame's Niklas in the second - if he's still there...

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

I don't even want him anymore, trade him away and draft another TE in the 3rd round.
