I always loved Graham's intensity. Just didn't like Bree's propensity to throw to him so much.

I don't see it happening personally. But weirder things have happened. He was much better here then he is in Seattle. Which seems to be case with almost all offensive players that leave NOLA.
I never saw intensity. He was soft and afraid to take hits. He was big and could catch, but intense isn't how I see him. Shocky is a different story.

It may not happen though.
Really... do I need to post boobs again....

Actually not, johnny. Fleener only carries a $4.8 million dead cap hit after the 2017 season. His guarantees were front loaded for the most part. We could easily part ways with Fleener after this season with very minimal affect on the overall cap.

I hope he turns it around. I haven't given up on him yet. With the departure of Cooks he really needs to step it up this year.

I haven't either. I'd like to see what Curtis Johnson can do with him. But, we aren't completely tied to him after this season if it doesn't turn out like we hope.

He's old, expensive, and he pissed off SP.
Probably not even a consideration
