Jimmy Graham Contract

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Franchise him. Then you can entertain any offers that you get. He is a dynamite player. But we can't afford for another player to take us to the bank....

No way would I be paying more for either of the Jacksons, or similar amounts for Brown, Garcon than I would for Graham.

Calvin Johnson may be immense but for that money you can be looking at Graham, Colston and Stills.
Calvin Johnson in this offense?!? Wow! Forget about it...

If you can't be stopped on offense, then you only need your defense to get one stop, one turnover; but no, that's too much commitment to one player under today's salary cap...

The only player in my mind worth 15mil+ per annum is in Denver now; and maybe the other kid in New England...

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

I hope we keep Jimmy for long term. Not because I find him amazing as a player, but because I got his jersey for my birthday.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

lets be honest if we do sign him he will probably become the highest paid TE in football

TAG him and save money baby

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

He is injured. He was playing balls out before the injury. That type of injury not only makes it painful to run and jump but makes it damn near impossible to plant your feet and get any kind of push whatsoever. That is why he was getting shut out. He has only played the game of football for 4 years and is still learning and has a huge ceiling.
I agree he has a lot to learn as a tight end. Our running game got going when Hill and Watson were in as tight ends.

That theory didn't work in 2011, and it hasn't worked for Manning yet.

Think brother..... It hurts Jimmy to do all you listed but not dunk over the cross bar?

Sorry, not buying it. If he were playing with a hurt foot there would be no dunking.
