It will cost us 3 times more to sign and trade him as it would to just sign and keep him.

We won a Super Bowl without it. With Cameron Jordan due a big contract after the 2014 season I'd rather do what's best for the Saints, not Jimmy Graham.

The Saints tagged him. I hope it's the non-exclusive variety.

Jimmy contract non exclusive according to Saints Nation

Saints Nation Blog ‏@SaintsNationBlg 21m
Graham tag non exclusive just means he can entertain offer sheets from other teams willing to give up two 1st round picks to get him.

Also saying he has been offered $10ml but isnt budging from 12ml

If they offered him $10 million and he seriously wants $12 million, he can pack his **** and go. Anybody who thinks $12 million is reasonable for him or that he's worth that to the team...I don't know what to say.

To play devils advocate would you rather pay Jimmy $12ml or D.Jackson 9.7,V Jackson 11.1, Bowe 11.2,Wallace 12,Harvin 12.8.I would take Jimmy above any of those at them figures

Your talking Jimmy vs WRs... pay scale is different. Jimmy could never be an elite WR. Jimmy needs to play in the slot or on the line so he isn't matched up with the defenses best corners. We all saw what happen when teams played him like a WR, he got shut down.

I love me some Jimmy but 12mil per year is insane. Let's hope we can get two 1st rounders for him and move on. Payton and Drew don't need Jimmy, Jimmy needs them. If Jimmy goes to another system he'll never see 1000+ yd season again.

I'm not sure they know how much the Saints offered.
