Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

I feel this monster thread is starting it's death spiral...

Please let these two parties come together and conclude with a contract both friendly to Jimmy and the Saints...

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Saints haven’t reduced offer to Graham | ProFootballTalk

"The Saints haven’t, and won’t, use the ruling that Graham is a tight end for franchise tag purposes to alter a proposal that would make Graham the highest-paid tight end in NFL history, with a package worth $9.5 million per year."

"...At $9.5 million per year with a considerable chunk of fully guaranteed money up front, Graham will have a hard time rejecting the offer and taking a year-to-year approach that would pay $7 million in 2014, $8.4 million in 2015, and quarterback money of $16 million or so in 2016..."

"...That’s $30 million over three years, but with Graham carrying the injury risk each and every season. If the Saints fully guarantee an amount equal or greater to the first two years ($15.4 million) and offer a total package in the range of $30 million over the first three years, it’s a no-brainer that Graham will take the offer..."

"Within 11 days, look for Graham and the Saints to finalize a long-term deal. "

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Until July 15, no reason to panic in Jimmy Graham contract negotiations | Jeff Duncan | NOLA.com

Jeff Duncan (Nola.com) - "...For better or worse, this is standard operating procedure for the parties involved in the Graham talks. Loomis rarely makes a deal before it's absolutely necessary. The last major contract I recall the Saints completing early was the Jahri Evans extension in 2010. He knows how to use leverage to his advantage and time is his ally in this instance. Each day Graham goes without collecting his payday and being ostracized from teammates as the season nears, the likelihood grows that he will cave and accept the Saints' standing multi-year offer of $9.5 million annually..."
