Michael Thomas or Jimmy Graham?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What's the better contract? MT got more than Jimmy. But Jimmy couldn't/wouldn't block well. "Can't Guard Mike" all day long for me. He has some great sideline grabs at the scrimmage at Yulman's yesterday....

Thomas. He's the better "Football" player. I also appreciate MT not using the NFL Players Association to leverage a raise.

MT the better contract. The special thing about Jimmy was stealing him in the draft and coaching him up considering how raw he was.

Or the NFLPA using Graham to challenge a definition within the franchise tag policy.

Well if Jimmy wasn't blocking (or making legitimate effort), then he's basically a receiver, neaux?!?

Aren't receivers expected to block too?

I'm confused? You reference Jimmy and blocking in the same sentence. I understand that you stated "if Jimmy wasn't blocking", but this infers that Jimmy did block on occasion. If I recall correctly, any blocking on Jimmy's part was totally accidental or unintentional.
