I realize that he is probably the best free agent TE out there which would then let us use a draft pick on another position of need. But I just can't get behind the thinking.

Incidentally we are already paying a number one tight end with Fleener still on the roster.
Most of the Fleener money could be directed to Graham; and I'd like to see a the guy redeem himself and reestablish himself...

Besides, there aren't many options in Free Agency and while there's some incredible TE talent in the draft, I'd prefer draft picks used on front seven and offensive line...

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Can't see outbidding Redskins when they'll probably pay his as a No. 1 Wideout...

...and @CantGuardMike will need to be extended next season...

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Surely going to get 10+ml a year

Not sure we can have 2 WR at that price without screwing other areas of the team

Exactly, some are suggesting his market will net as much as 12mil/annum; that puts him with Alshon, TYH, and DBaldwin...

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Rather keep that money aside for Thomas

We do not need another number 1 WR, a good complement WR(Landry would have been ideal) or as i said i think a speed like Taylor Gabriel would be a great add with what we have and add Graham just takes it over the top

If not Gabriel,Jordan Matthews,Marques Lee or Paul Richardson would all have something to offer

Re: 2018 NFL Free Agency

Love Watkins but he will get number 1 WR money or at least close to it
A lot of teams with alot of money that need WR help,someone will make a offer he cannot refuse

Do not know much on Wilson
