But Graham still doesn’t have a new contract. Per multiple league sources, the Saints have made an offer. Graham’s camp has not yet responded.
Graham has entered the final season of his slotted rookie deal and was drafted the same year as Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, both of whom received long-term extensions. Graham is still waiting and may have to wait a lot longer as the Saints have shown that they won’t pay close to market value until the player has maximum leverage.
If Graham stays healthy, he’ll have it — especially if he prevails on the question of whether he’s a receiver for franchise tag purposes.
