Shop Jimmy Graham?

Was just watching NFL Network (like I normally do when I come home from work) and two of the analyst agreed that the Saints should shop Jimmy Graham for draft picks. I highly doubt this happens due to us just signing him but with how the season is going so far do you see the Saints begin the "rebuilding process" with a few draft picks?

Not sure. Some teams have made successes by trading away talent. In this case I would say probably not though. It makes for good TV I guess but I believe we are a better team with him than without + draft picks.

If we continue to play the way we have for the past 6 games, we won't need to shop JG for draft picks we'll get them based on our record.

Wow, really?

Possibly our best player and only real mismatch?

BTW: It would cost us 12 million against our cap to trade him.

So we would lose Jimmy Graham AND 12 million in cap room.

Loomis would have to be the dumbest GM on the planet (and every other planet that may sustain human life in the entire Universe and all other Universes as well) to shop Jimmy Graham.

Re: Shop Jimmy Graham?

If not for the cap ramifications I'd trade him. Not for picks though. I'd swap him for a legit #1 WR. A top LB or CB. An elite offensive lineman. Something along those lines.

Well if not for NFL draft rules I'd draft a CB, OC, OG, WR, CB, DT, DE and 2 LB's in the 1st round.

Re: Shop Jimmy Graham?

2 firsts and a second or something along those lines sounds enticing. I love Jimmy, and I hope he retires a Saint, but its always good to weigh your options.
