Re: Graham gets Franchise Tag...

I could live with the non-exclusive tag; Two 1st round picks, if he signs somewhere else...

Jimmy just became a very rich man.

Regardless of what happens now big dollars 'gone be rollin' on in.

If we're keeping him, I say we cut Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, and Lance Moore, let Zach Strief, Malcolm Jenkins, and Brian De la Puente walk, and try to make as much cap room as we can. Restructuring deals and what not.

Like I've said before this gets us to next year and I think he knew this was going to happen. We can make up the difference in the cap next year and pay him a great long term contract

Re: Graham gets Franchise Tag...

If no team wants to give up 2 picks for him, and he plays this season under the franchise tag, I wonder what his agent could do for him then with no other team wanting to "pay the man". Loomis might still get him on the cheap. Funny buisness kind of like Russian roulette.

We would most certainly lose him if that were the case considering Cam Jordan would be a free agent and keeping him would be pretty important. I say let Jimmy go.

As long as Drew is here Jimmy won't be going anywhere. The two have formed a special bond and Jimmy knows his career will flourish with Drew
chucking balls to him.
