quote: I know. But you think he doesn't have that leverage? They play him as a WR now, he is going to want to get paid like one and I can't blame him. It's a very tough situation. But he deserves every penny he gets, either way.
I get sick of that arguement. He is a TE and deserves to be the highest paid TE in the game. He is not a WR.

Put yourself in his shoes, man. It's a matter of tens of millions of dollars. If your employer molded your role around A, but paid you like B, wouldn't you want to be paid like A if A's salary was much more than B?
I want the Saints to be in good shape financially, but having a great roster does come at a big cost. Would you rather not have Jimmy Graham? Because I'm guessing he will want to get paid like a WR. And he is played like a WR.
