I hope he gets to see Sherman again and redeems himself.

Re: Jimmy Graham SIGNS Contract

We all knew he was going to sign eventually. That's not really a surprise. Fortunately, he didn't cost quite as much as it was once looking like. That's why you fight that battle of position designation, from the Saints' perspective. Screw all the morons in the media who were acting like they were slapping him in the face. If you want to keep a player, you do what's necessary, and if Jimmy had a problem with it, then he could have freely walked.

Not to nitpick, but after he was slapped with the Franchise Tag he could not have "freely" walked. Not without sitting out this upcoming year by not signing the tag...

I'm talking about walking away from the deal. Whether that meant sitting out the season or playing under the tag and then leaving. If he just couldn't accept the saints point of view and felt "dissed", or whatever, then he didn't have to sign a long term deal.

The point is that the Saints can only afford so much and you can't fault them for doing whatever they could to bring the price down. Just like everybody understands the player's desire to make more. I understood that, but didn't want to see the Saints cave and give into an absurd amount of money. I'm relatively pleased about where they were able settle on.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
