ok one more time.

Oakland calls and wants the trade.
Oakland calls Jimmy agent and a contract agreement can be reached
the saints the agent and the raiders sit down
jimmy is packing his bags and he is out of here

It can be done - it has been done and it will continue to be done.

we do not need to eat anything

I'd take that deal in a split second if 2 of those picks were a first and the 3rd a second.

Then you have nothing to trade. The Saints do not have any ownership in Jimmy Graham right now, they just have an option to match a contract with another team.

I will try to make this very simple.

Jimmy Graham is a Free Agent 1st with a Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag 2nd.
We have absolutely nothing to trade until Jimmy Graham Signs something.
All the Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag does is allow the Saints the option to match any offer that Jimmy graham and another team agree upon.

The Saints, Saints Front Office, Mickey Loomis, Sean Payton, Drew Brees, no one with in the Saints organization is or will be involved with any agreement between Jimmy Graham and another team UNTIL Jimmy signs an offer sheet.

Once the sheet is signed the Saints either match it or wait for the league to give them 2 First Round Draft picks.

In order for the Saints to have anything to trade Jimmy has to sign his FT or a contract of some sort. A FT will come with 7m in dead money to trade and a long term deal will come with a whole lot more dead money, because Jimmy isnt signing a long term deal unless it has a nice signing bonus.

BTW.. I am not picking on you, your post was the one at the bottom when i decided to reply.

To show you what interest the Saints own in Jimmy Graham right now, if the season starts when I click post, Jimmy Graham could not take the field for the Saints. He is not under any contract.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

No Sir. The Saints are not involved in any table meeting between Jimmy Graham and Oakland.. I stated that when you tried the scenario with Houston.

It has NEVER been done with a player not under contract.
The Saints have nothing to trade as there is no contract between the Saints and Jimmy Graham presently
