Jimmy Graham......

I know some people may not want to hear this but I am really tired of this Jimmy Graham stuff. I hope the Saints can find a partner to do some kind of sign and trade thing. Maybe some team would be willing to give up a 1st and 3rd next year and a 2nd Rounder the year after. Then the Saints should sign Jermichael Finley to a deal.

Re: Jimmy Graham......

No you absolutely do not. By appealing, graham is buying time to work out a long term deal.

Re: Jimmy Graham......

That's what I am thinking as well; just gives them more time to work out a long-term deal...

Doesn't really how much the tag is for, no one wants to play under it

Re: Jimmy Graham......

@AdamSchefter: Saints and Jimmy Graham closing in on long-term deal to make him highest-paid TE in NFL history. Now optimism deal done by Tues deadline.
Please, refrain from these emotional threads. None of us really know what's happening. It's the Brees scenario all over again, so let's try our best here.

Re: Jimmy Graham......

but how much can the Saints really afford to give him? is it really going to be worth it if he doesnt show up when we need him again ?

Re: Jimmy Graham......

Graham already accounts for 7 mil and change against the cap and we have 1.5 or something in room. A long term deal will free up some room this year b/c it will be backloaded, like Byrd's contract.

Who are we to say? None of us truly know what the teams margin to the salary cap is and we're not signing the checks so we can't worry about whether or not it's worth it...

All we can do is trust in Loomis/Benson to do what they think is best for the team
