Re: Jimmy Graham SIGNS Contract

Happy for the Saints and fans...

Happy for Jimmy Graham...

Hope he has good advisers and doesn't geaux overboard on his new plane...

But, this is his last big contract...

He might get a high yield one year deal if he's close to HOF record breaking that could be completed with the Saints...

Let's geaux get us a Lombardi...

No, the last three months were about the NFLPA challenging a portion of the CBA just like they did when Brees was tagged two years ago. There was no doubt the deal would get done and there was no reason to do it any sooner than today.

Re: Jimmy Graham SIGNS Contract

Per WalterFootball.com

Saints extend TE Jimmy Graham (4 years, $40M; $21M guaranteed): A+ Grade
This may seem like a ton of money for a tight end - it's the most ever for one - but compare it to some other contracts around the NFL. Jared Cook received a ridiculous $35.11 million ($19M guaranteed) over five years from the Rams. Dennis Pitta, meanwhile, inked a 5-year, $32.5 million pact with the Ravens, which included $16 million guaranteed. By comparison, New Orleans is getting a steal.

Graham is well worth the money. He's one of the elite play-makers in football, and with Rob Gronkowski struggling to stay healthy every year, Graham has become the NFL's top tight end. Barring injury, this will be money well spent.
