Ben Watson doesn't believe they'll be tension between Graham and team

I doubt there will be either.

New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson says the team and fellow teammate Jimmy Graham both know its just business and will move on accordingly after an arbitrator's ruling went against Graham, labeling him a tight end for franchise tag money purposes.

ďIím very confident that itíll be resolved the right way and guys can move forward,Ē Watson said, via ESPN's Mike Triplett. ďObviously itís always tough when you go through litigation with somebody, and it can probably get heated. And Iím sure there are emotions on both sides. But that is the business side of the game.

ďAnd itís unfortunate that it came to that and that it was so public. But I really think -- I know, I donít think -- I know that Jimmy loves New Orleans and I know that he loves our team and the organization and he loves playing here. And we love him, everybody wants him here, coaches included. So when it comes down to contract situations, thatís just a necessary evil ... not even evil, but just a necessary progression of getting a player here.Ē

The media is the only one fanning those flames. I just heard Stephen A Smith talking about how Jimmy and Coach Payton's relationship is ruined. What an ass.

Agreed. A total ass. Smith is constantly reflecting his own biased attitude onto others.

Jimmy wants to play
The cba wanted him to be the poster boy
He will get a great long term contract under the cap
And hopefully is fully healthy this year

Now if he can get to camp nd learn how to block

Was the team upset with Drew? No. They will be glad that he is back. It's just business.

Stephen Smith is to ESPN what the bearded lady and the two headed chickens are to the Circus.
