re: Saints interested in Jimmy Graham
Sign Jimmy and draft LB, OL depth, Dline. If Jimmy is has a good a year as he did when he was with the Saints this offense will be unstoppable. How will defenses guard all our weapons?

re: Saints interested in Jimmy Graham
Yes he does.
He would absolutely disappear in games. Guessing u didn't watch any Seahawks games cause I did and this isn't the same Jimmy Graham.
Yeah he can still box out in the red zone but he's not that same 25 26 year old freak sprinting down the seam all game long.
I'd sign him on a team friendly one year deal with option for 2nd.
And I could def see it happening

Russel Wilson is not in the same league as Drew Brees passing the ball. I wouldn't want to bust my arse done the field all game for him either.

Please for the right price. He would make us truly dynamic on offense, but I don't want to lose depth on defense because of it.

Honestly, I'd take his red zone/3rd down presence alone. Fleener can take his usual seam routes who actually made some damn impressive catches last year.

Got told that Jimmy Graham could be interested in returning to #Saints, and that the 'bad blood' many fans still bring up between he and the team might be gone.

Free agency starts in 7 days. (Negotiations can start on 12th. New league year and signings start March 14th)

I remember alligator arms and nonexistent blocking. I'd just as soon have another taller receiver who could actually block. We'd be less predictable and probably more productive in the run game.

Trade for 5th or 6th round draft pick.

Did Fleener block?

re: Saints interested in Jimmy Graham
I do think his toughness is somewhat questionable but let's face it, teams were game planning for JG. I've read a lot of comments saying the offense was predictable when he was on the team and I agree somewhat. I'm just not sold on the idea that the offense was somehow worse with JG. I also read comments about him not being that good of a blocker. Again, I somewhat agree but I don't think he makes a living off of blocking. If he consistently dropped passes at an alarming rate or could not create separation or stretch the field but was an average or solid run blocker he would not have a job. Period. Take a look at Gronk. Gronk's held together with baling wire and for someone his size takes a lot of punishment rather than give it out. If Brady wants to go deep, it's likely going to Gronk (predictable). Same with the redzone. Predictable does not mean hopeless. Defenses still have to line up and stop the play. Besides, the Saints' offense is a lot more dynamic now than back then. He was what made the offense tough to stop back then and I think he'd provide more now just by the fact of what would be around him on offense. That would be a DC nightmare. Teams would be in a small nickel package all game with JG, Kamara and Thomas. Run baby Run!

This is what cracks me up, people trying to sell this somehow. He had 16 TDs in 2011 on likely one of the top 5 offenses ever in the league. He was still very good in his time here and the whole dispute deal clouded people's judgment.

I think he would step right back in here at minimum a deadly red zone/3rd down guy and probably still has some giddy up. Him with Thomas, Kamara, Ingram, Ginn, a possible bounce back year from Snead. This offense will be great.
