Jimmy Graham sends out tweet bashing Saints offseason
Jimmy Graham is 'shocked and disappointed' by the way the Saints offseason is going.
The Saints offseason isn't off to a good start, at least if you ask tight end Jimmy Graham. Less than an hour after the news surfaced that New Orleans would be releasing running back Darren Sproles, Graham sent out a tweet saying he was 'disappointed' by the Saints offseason so far.
Wow unbelievable. Shocked and disappointed on everything that's gone on this offseason.— Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) March 8, 2014
Graham may be starting to wonder who besides him is going to catch passes in New Orleans next season. Besides Sproles, the Saints also cut wide receiver Lance Moore on Friday. That duo combined to catch 108 passes for 1,061 yards and four touchdowns last season.
There's also a chance New Orleans could cut or trade Pierre Thomas and as if that's not enough, there's also that whole franchise tag thing. Graham was tagged as a tight end, but feels that he should be tagged as a wide receiver. Under the tight end tag, Graham will earn $7.035 million in 2014. A wide receiver playing under the franchise tag will earn $12.312 million in 2014.
In the Saints defense, if Graham wants more money, they have to free up that money so they can give it to him.
