Jets | Graham signs new contract; but for how long?

Craig Hutchinson of the Herald Sun, reports New York Jets P Ben Graham was offered a seven-year, $7 million contract by the team, but he turned it down to take his chances after the NFL's new collective bargaining agreement is struck. Graham's representatives this week rejected the deal, hoping to cash in when the Jets relieve some of their salary cap burden after the March 1 deadline. Graham did sign a new deal Tuesday, Jan. 3, but the details were not released. Graham refused to discuss the contract negotiations, but said: "I want to be the punter for the long term for the New York Jets and it's great that they want me around."
