Default Re: Saints, Jimmy Graham, franchise tag, and position battle

Quote:
The New Orleans Saints recently utilized the franchise tag on tight end Jimmy Graham... any team that wants him needs to write a fat check and relinquish two first-round picks.
...
"I think the only players more valuable than Jimmy Graham are three or four quarterbacks," said one AFC general manager. "That's it."
...
Thus, several general mangers say the Saints will have to fight to keep Graham, and the heavy price tag will not be as intimidating to some teams. These executives believe a handful of franchises are preparing offers to get Graham. They say this isn't speculation. However, no teams have officially revealed their hand. So, for now, it's partially speculation.

The best way to state this: Word is beginning to leak around the league that one or more teams will make a run at Graham and are more than willing to give up two first-rounders to get him. What hasn't leaked yet are the names of the teams.
