Why — four more years is perfect for Jimmy Graham.

He is potentially back on the free agent market again, after eight NFL seasons.

Four years from now, Graham will have a better idea on the answers to two very important questions:

  • Is Drew Brees still my quarterback?
  • Is Sean Payton still me head coach?

No one should appreciate Brees and Payton more than Graham. He arrived in New Orleans as an athlete with limited football experience. Four years later, thanks to his hard work, and the organization he is the highest paid tight end in the NFL.

All good things will come to an end and when they do, Jimmy Graham will have options.
