24 hour countdown -----crickets

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Practically no news out there as we approach the deadline: no word on negotiations or an appeal. Graham's $7 mill already counts against our cap, but we have little room after that, which is why we need to sign him ...

24 hour countdown -----crickets

Practically no news out there as we approach the deadline:
no word on negotiations or an appeal.

Graham's $7 mill already counts against our cap, but we have little room after that, which is why we need to sign him and backload a deal.

Also, JG has no incentive to sign the Tag and play it out, because he'll then just go thru the same saga again next year

Less than an hour from deadline for filing appeal, it appears that Jimmy Graham WON'T be filing appeal of franchise-tag decision.

Why would we hear? There's nothing to hear about until it's done. Either way JG is a Saint this year so sit back relax and let's not look for crap to sweat over.

Don't give him more than 10 mil, even that is to much money.

No. It means the deadline to appeal was about to expire and it would be an incompetent agent that would let a bargaining chip go away unused.

Why. We aren't paying him. The cap limit is going up fast and any deal will not hurt the Saints. I don't care what the deal is for as long as it is made. We are better with him than without him. Bottom line. That's it.
