Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

What to do?

Sign him. Pay him #1 Tight End money (not #1 WR money).

He's young, uber-talented with a mountain of upside.

Plus Drew Brees will be here for another 4 years.

No brainer.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Well, the big issue is whether he's a tight end or wide receiver or hybrid; we may argue, but it's what Saints FO and Graham's Agent or going to agree...

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

They won't. Tom Condon is his agent IIRC sooooooo look for a long, drawn out "negotiation" this offseason. I'm basically not watching ESPN after the draft.

Wow, didn't know Condom was his agent. Well, good by then. He's great if your a player, but he's a team killer.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

We'll make him the highest paid tight end in the league. We have no choice. We can critique his technique as a TE all we want, but we can't let his productivity get away. I'm guessing a contract that averages $8 million per year.

Re: Jimmy Graham Contract

Should he be moved to WR permanently? The guy is an awful TE...

He was a huge disappointment at the end of the season and I think the word is out on how to cover him. I don't see him being nearly as effective for the rest of his career. Put your most physical player on him in press man coverage and he is done. I am not a DC but it seems pretty simple to take him out of the game.
