Deke: Graham deal should get done sooner than later

Now that the ruling is in, a long term deal to keep TE Jimmy Graham in a Saints uniform should get done, and soon. I have no reason to believe otherwise. Graham will probably become the highest paid tight end in the NFL.

For those who were upset that Graham tested the waters to see if he could be classified as a WR, my words to you would be 'don’t take it personally.'  It was all a matter of business. Now with that hurdle cleared and out of the way, it’s time to focus on what can be controlled.

What can be controlled is making sure that the leader in touchdown receptions in 2013 remains in Black and Gold. Graham is a pass catcher. WR’s, TE’s and RB’s are all players that catch the football.

Graham hauled in a league best 16 TD’s in 2013 and he has quickly become one of the most difficult to defend pass catchers in the game today.  So now the Saints have until July 15 to iron out a long term deal for Graham.  I’m betting that the deal will get done, sooner than later!
