Shop Jimmy Graham?

Re: Shop Jimmy Graham?

Jimmy makes his money because he is a dominating red zone performer. While I still believe his overall skills leave a lot to be desired, there is no doubt about his ability to catch passes in tight spots. With that said I am still on the fence regarding the big long term contract, but since that was done I do not see a situation that would warrant him being traded. Even on a full rebuild, which you should know the Saints will not do until Brees is gone, I would think he would be considered an asset while rebuilding a team.

Re: Shop Jimmy Graham?

Once a player starts having significant injuries (feet, shoulders, knees) in quick succession, there are a couple of problems besides the obvious.

1- Trying to come back to quickly
2- Practice does not involve repetition of proper techniques
3- Severity of prior injuries requires physiomechanical adjustments that set up future injuries.

This appears to be a big trend for Graham. He has been seriously injured each of the last 3 seasons. It may be that his future impact may be compromised, opening up the possibility for a trade to get max value before he becomes unable to play and the contract is dead money.

I actually like this idea. Of course this whole thread is a fairy tale, so here's mine. Jimmy Graham for Le'Vontae David, straight up.

We missed our chance for this before his contract.

Rule #1, don't watch NFL network.

Re: Shop Jimmy Graham?

I wish we would have made him play for tag money. We wouldn't have to worry about his ailments or a big contract. Loomis screwed the pooch on this 1 but it's not his first in overpaying players or keeping them well past their use.
