Saints Trade Graham

Only on a day like today.

The Saints offseason took an unexpected turn as the team has decided to ship Jimmy Graham off to Oakland for the Raiders’ 1st, 3rd and 7th round picks in 2014. Wow. Word is the Saints will now make Eric Ebron, tight end out of North Carolina, a drafting priority come May. Graham continued to insist on “Megatron” type money and the Raiders have rewarded him with a 6 year contract for $92.5 million with $40 million guaranteed. That’s an astronomical figure that the Saints were never going to come close to paying. The contract makes Graham the highest paid tight end in history by almost $5 million per year. That is an astronomical contract for Graham and the Raiders also gave up the 5th overall pick to get him. It remains to be seen who the Saints will get with that 5th pick but there are lots of difference making options.


APRIL FOOL’S!!!

One thing I learned from drinking. You should always go Christmas caroling with a group. Oh, and always in mid-December.

Re: Saints Trade Graham

If they had any sense they would have set the story as team x have offered Jimmy a contract in the region of 6 years/$12ml a year snd the Saints have 7 days to match it.

Re: Saints Trade Graham

Even know we could get a lot more this would not make me upset. JG is a stud but the Saints were great without him and we could add 3 more pieces and free up cap space......

Re: Saints Trade Graham

WE CANNOT TRADE HIM WITHOUT EATING THE WHOLE OF HIS TAG MONEY WHEN HE SIGNS IT. WE CANNOT TRADE SOMEBODY NOT UNDER A CONTRACT.
