Sounds good to me. Graham is a true boss, but his value is only as good as his matchup. He's not a playmaking WR who can do everything on his own. He's dependent on guys on the outside and Sproles to manipulate coverage for him to make his awesome plays. Without that, teams will just double him all day and erase his production.
That's why to me adding another big time weapon this offseason has to be a priority.
For that reason, he deserves the TE tag, not the WR tag. Although I'm sure he's going to argue it. To me, it's in his best interest to get a deal done. If we're successful in labeling him a TE, we could do that for two or even three years at a better rate than what he wants.
