Re: Jimmy Graham SIGNS Contract

Graham gets $13 million this year, $8 million next year

Per a source with knowledge of the contract, Graham received $12 million to sign, along with a $1 million base salary for 2014. That’s $13 million in the first year (math!) and a cap number of $4 million.
That suddenly frees up an additional $3.3M on the 2014 cap. Just like several of us have been attempting to point out. THAT is how the Saints can afford $10M per year.

Again with the # magic! We have by far the best front office. As much as I fussed I'm glad he is still a Saint. He said he will be a Saint as long as Brees is. 4 year deal makes sense. I said 3yr/30 million and was only a year off.

My guess is he's taking a stab at the many who keep screaming "greedy" or "trade"

Oh, and by the way, any unused cap is rolled into the following year's cap. This gives the Saints an insurance policy that they can collect upon next year if not needed this year.
