Bell: Drew Brees ready to go with or without Jimmy Graham

You know, silver lining in this saga is that if, as has been offered, that the Saints offense has become predictable, imagine that Brees will now have to work without him for the time being and will develop other options and will get away from the Graham tunnel vision he may have been guilty...

This should be a good thing...

He has never said he wasn't a tight end. He is nothing but a pawn in the NFLPA's game.

The problem is that he never said he is a TE either.

And why should he. He is as much a spectator in all of this as the rest of us.

No, the NFLPA is doing it for future leverage, just like they did with the Brees case two years ago. Graham is going to get exactly the same long term deal regardless of franchise designation.
