All offseason, the concern for the Saints was whether they could make the numbers work with *tight end Jimmy Graham.

But when he showed up for work, he posted another number that reminded them of his value.

Saints coach Sean Payton said Graham had the “low time” in the team’s pre-camp conditioning test.

“That was significant. I told him to stay in Miami every offseason,” Payton said, via Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. “I mean, it was outstanding.”

Re: Saints say no awkwardness with Jimmy Graham

why i think this is what the saints wanted to give him in the end anyways, 5 to 1 says this would have been done earlier but the union pushed the issue to see if they could get a new position out of the deal or at least start laying the ground work for the next set of TE coming up. It is all about them, that is the union, getting more money for themselves. IMO

deal is fair and i really like the 4 yr length of the contract

Re: Saints say no awkwardness with Jimmy Graham

Why would there be any awkwardness?
Nearly every player in the league goes through the same process at some point in their career

Once again making a story where there isn't one

Re: Saints say no awkwardness with Jimmy Graham

I like the four year lock too.
Keeps him and Brees together at least for the in focus future.
Now we only have to concern ourselves with the other stuff.
Both staying healthy and staying productive will give us good chances for success.

It's not personal, it's just business. I have to feed my kids.
