Jimmy Graham return in 2018?

Speaking of Fleener he had a great preseason but it's like we aren't even using the TEs in the passing game at all. A couple of targets but that's it.

I would rather see us find another young TE in the draft.

As would I, but if the price is right I'll take him back in a flash.

We're in win now mode and Brees knows how to use JG.

I'm OK with some sort of deal to bring him back, but Captain obvious says don't pay too much!

Re: Jimmy Graham return in 2018?

Another consideration was brought up on tonight's live WLAE broadcast on the Inside New Orleans Sports with Eric Asher show...

Is Jimmy Graham still Jimmy Graham? At 31 years old with an aged body, would he be any more productive than what we have now not named Colby Fleener?

And in fairness to Fleener, he's the same player he was in Indy, Loomis/Payton just overpaid for him thinking that somehow makes him better...

I've wondered about Fleener. I think Sean thought Drew would make him better - I really think that, but whatever it is with the guy is more than even Brees can compensate for. It's too bad - wouldn't bother me to see us cut bait and move on.

So, the TE is traded away.
Afterwards, he performed poorly.

The team that traded him away has failed to draft, trade for, and otherwise have anything near the same production from another TE.

That means lightning in a bottle happened

Management failed to capitalize on it.

Time Marches On.

JG was soft as chewed bubble gum before he was shipped off.

It is amazing how some re-write the past.

Graham has no place on this Saints team

Looks like the SeaChickens still think he does not fit. They hate his salary cap.

Re: Jimmy Graham return in 2018?

We lost Cooks, Snead isn't producing [yet], Thomas is balling.

Coleman, Hill, Fleener, Honamanawui [sp?], Tommylee, etc. are a bunch of meh. We have a running back as our #2 receiver [yes he is amazing].

So, if Kamara gets dinged up we're basically up a creek with only Ingram and Thomas. I don't see how JG does not help the O. Obviously don't overpay or expect him to be 27 years old.

AP got in trouble for whooping his child...JG sent out a tweet and somehow JG is the a-hole?
