Incorrect, we could have tagged him twice for 6 million less than that, and we don't have the cap for that 2-yr/21million scenario

Re: Jimmy Graham SIGNS Contract

Wonder at this point if we have designs on that cap room since we have something like $4.6 million under now. Some veteran depth on the DL might be nice, or maybe even another WR or RB. You never know what's going to shake out from the first round of cuts.

Oh I knew it was wrong. Every other outlet is reporting the 4 year deal. And why would the team even agree to a 2 year deal? More sense for all parties to do longer term.

I think we keep the room for emergency use; in-season injuries and the like. And whatever room we have rolls over into next year, so it helps there to

If the Saints choose to cut him after two years that is what it would be. The deal contained $20 million guaranteed, including a $12 million signing bonus and an $8 million roster bonus that becomes effective following the 2014 season. That means the following:

Year one: $12 million signing bonus prorated over the 4 year term of the deal ($3M per year) plus a base salary of $1M. Cap hit $4M and total paid $13M

Year two: $8M roster bonus and the remaining $9M of prorated signing bonus due if Graham is not retained for year three. Cap hit $17M

If the Saints decide after year two to move on then it is a 2 year deal worth at least $21M ($4M year one + $17M year two).

CBS Sportsline is pretty much a tabloid at this point, take nothing they say as fact.
