I don't think I would have been comfortable with paying him half that.

Yep. I commend the Saints FO for drawing a line in the sand on contract talks.

Saints weren’t thrilled when they agreed to four years, $40 million in 2014. No way they were going to go that route again. https://t.co/zv64bHFhGn

Re: Bring Jimmy Graham Home!

They did overpay. That being said, Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Graham together scares me. I think the Packers front office has a vision of how that combination will work together. Jimmy Graham doesn't need much separation to make plays. Aaron Rodgers ability to move outside of the pocket is going to leave Jimmy him with a lot of easy catches. It may not work out the way they envision, but I can see why the Packers would be the one team to significantly overpay.

I really wanted to see Jimmy come back, but would have cursed the front office had they matched GB's offer. Way too much money at this point in his career, especially with the other weapons we now have on offense.
