Re: Jimmy Graham demanding 12 million per season?

Jimmy might be a great athlete, but he is not a great tight end (can't block) and is not a great wide reciever (can't beat a true #1 corner). Without Payton putting him in favorable matchups and Brees getting him the ball, he'd be just another great athlete TE with average production like a Jermichael Finley or Jared Cook.

He wants $12 million, go find it somewhere else. We won a Super Bowl with a broken-down Jeremy Shockey as the starting TE and a defense that wasn't even half as good as the one we got now. I'd rather spend that money locking up Jordan, Hicks, Galette and others long-term and start turning this into a run-heavy offense.

I guess this contract negotiation is the result of hanging out with Drew.
Get your money when you can, after all it is a business.

12 million no freaking way

10 million do not think so

8 million your getting warmer

Elite Players do not vanish in big games. I mean vanish

counter offer 2 mill and a bag of chip

to be honest if he walked into the office demanding that contract my first reaction is this kid does not care about the state of the team. next reaction who wants this ### ? get on the phone and start talking asap.

Steve Jackson lost his money?

Who do I hitch my cart to?
Garafolo - Graham wants 12m
Loomis - we are going to tag him as a TE.

It doesn't help that Jimmy keeps seeing the cap #s go up also.

Re: Jimmy Graham demanding 12 million per season?

Do you know how many good players we could get with 12 million a year. Hell Byrd from Buffalo is no where near 12 million and he shows up. I would let him walk because if we tag him it's only going to pi$$ him off and I don't think he would show up at all. We have TE's that can do the job, put some money in to beef up the O-line. There are even a few really polished TE's in the draft, I'm certain we could get a deep threat reciever or two with that money and have cap space to boot.

I love JG but that would be ridicolous.

I know one thing for certain, I'm going to be damn thrilled.
Hope you like 9 win seasons and one and done in the playoffs because that's what you will get with so much money invested in so few players. You'll end up with a few stars sorrounded by a bunch of below average players because thats all the cap left will afford. I like Graham and Brees, but those two contracts are super bowl dream crushers.

If he's really asking for that kind of money, I'd trade him on draft day for a couple 1st rounders

houston or oakland would easily give up their pick for JG
