Report: Free-agent TE Jimmy Graham marching toward New Orleans Saints reunion
Mar 12, 2018 Updated 11 min ago

The New Orleans Saints haven't yet locked up free-agent QB Drew Brees, but they're working behind the scenes to bring back Brees' most dangerous pass catcher from 2011-14 for a second go-around.

Momentum for a reunion between the Saints and TE Jimmy Graham is building, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo tweeted Monday morning, roughly a half-hour after teams and agents could officially start negotiating.

The Saints dealt Graham and a mid-round pick to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for C Max Unger and the 31st overall pick three years ago. Graham never matched his prolific production with Brees in Seattle, but he's coming off a 10-TD campaign in which he finished by playing his best ball as a Seahawk.

Graham, 31, enters Year Nine and would be an upgrade over Coby Fleener, who has disappointed since signing a five-year, $36 million deal to replace Graham, on the NFL's No. 1 passing offense.

First things first: The Saints only have until the new league year opens on Wednesday afternoon to sign Brees to a new deal or his $18 million option will count as dead money toward the 2018 cap. It's long been assumed Brees and New Orleans would find common ground on a new short-term deal with the club coming off its best season since winning the Super Bowl in 2009. But the clock is ticking, and we assume — there's that word again — Mickey Loomis and Co. wouldn't be talking to Graham without feeling extremely confident Brees would still be the one throwing to him

Take it for what it's worth. Ian Fullacrap is mentioned as a source.

Re: Bring Jimmy Graham Home!

That certainly sounds encouraging. I think Jimmy is the obvious answer at TE, at least for this year.

Re: Bring Jimmy Graham Home!

I never thought we should've let Graham go in the first place and if we wanted Unger so bad we should've given them a few picks and we probably wouldn't have gone 7-9 but 9-7 and probably made the playoffs once

The ONLY way the deal was going to be made was by including Graham. By including their first rounder it became a deal we couldn't turn down.
