The Saints fans are the winners here. Coming off a disasterous season in which Graham really looked like he gave up on many occasions, we are now hyped and excited to see what happens next. I just hope we can turn around our recent struggles in the draft. We now have two first round picks and if we can find two starters there, we'll be on our way. I like Maxx Williams a TE from Minnesota. If we could get him in the 2nd or even 3rd round, I think he could be a starter for years to come and be a Jason Witten type of player.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

i am going back to what i said when jimmy signed the new contract.

his shelf life is almost up. injuries will be a year in and year out issue with him. jump balls and defenders under cutting him has taken a toll on that big ol body.

Geez... That's a pretty awesome deal for you guys.

Re: Saints Trade Graham to the Seahawks

Brees is at his best when he has a pocket to step up in, last year the pocket was collapsing a lot. The 3 interior linemen are more important for the Saints than the tackles.

Jimmy Graham has been to much of a focal point in an offense that thrives on versatility and spreading the ball around. We have two really good young WRs in Stills and Cooks, a savvy veteran in Colston.

Add to that Josh Hill that looked really good and I think this might be a good move. Also adding a good center should help make the running game even better.

And what happens when your running game is better? Offensive drives take more time and controls the clock which in turn helps the defence. I love Jimmy but this can turn out to be a real solid move.

Now lets see us package those two first and move up to the #4 pick to get a kicker...

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

When Brees has enough time in the pocket, EVERYONE is Jimmy Graham.

Robbery? We got a first from you and a center to protect Drew and block for Ingram when healthy. Meanwhile you get a fourth rounder.


And thats why we have a new scout to see to it we hit on our picks.

He doesn't mean they robbed us... Just that getting a playmaker like Jimmy Graham with that little amount of guaranteed money is ridiculous.

I bet Julius Thomas is kicking himself
Charles Clay only on a transition tender
Jordan Cameron,(got to line up Jordan Cameron-Cameron Jordan at least once)
No need. If you want to get an idea of the Saints offense without Graham, take a look at the Pittsburgh game last season. Other than the decoy on the Watson TD, Graham simply wasn't a significant contributor. And the offense still ran like clockwork.
