New Orleans Saints Would Be Foolish To Place Franchise Tag On Jimmy Graham
Far too often, NFL fans get so enamored with the here and now that the term “best in the league” is used frequently and a lot of times it doesn’t really fit. Well, Jimmy Graham is the best tight end in the league and there is no denying this one. Sure, Rob Gronkowski is a touchdown machine when he’s healthy, but the New England Patriots‘ red-zone weapon misses so much time that Graham is the clear-cut top dog.
Unfortunately for the New Orleans Saints, Graham no longer has a contract with the team. Of course, the Saints are going to do their best to bring him back in one way or another. One option that New Orleans general manager Mickey Loomis has kicked around is placing the franchise tag on Graham. To be frank: that is easily the most idiotic decision the team could make at this juncture.
If the Saints were to franchise Graham he would make almost double what the average tight end makes in 2014 and then New Orleans would be in the same exact predicament this time next year. Instead of thinking short-term with a tag, the Saints need to invest in Graham so that the franchise can have the Drew Brees-Graham connection for at least the next four years.
Talented tight ends like Jimmy Graham don’t grown on trees, so the Saints need to make a commitment to No. 80 before someone else does.
