Saints | Drew Brees hopes for quick resolution to Jimmy Graham's situation

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 09:18:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he wants the team to have a quick resolution to TE Jimmy Graham's contract situation so that the two have valuable time together on the field before the season starts. "Jimmy's my guy," Brees said in a sit-down interview late last month. "I want what's best for him. I want what's best for the team. Certainly there's a way that everybody can be happy coming out of this deal. But it is part of the process, and I went through something similar to this two years ago, so I get it." The Saints have eight days to work out a long-term deal with Graham, and sources expect negotiations to extend up until the deadline on July 15.

Saints | Drew Brees not worried about Jimmy Graham's absence

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 10:05:50 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees thinks the offense will be fine at mandatory minicamp this week in the absence of TE Jimmy Graham, who is waiting on a franchise-tag dispute. Graham led the team last year with 86 catches, 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns. "Look at our numbers over the last eight years," Brees said. "We've had a lot of different guys in there. Jimmy's only been here four years. He's only been here half the time. We were putting up some pretty big numbers before he got here, and we've been putting up some big numbers since he's been here."

Saints | Brandin Cooks selected 20th overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 19:19:56 -0700

The New Orleans Saints selected Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks with the 20th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Meet the new Darren Sproles-Lance Moore in N'awlins. Cooks is in a fine situation to succeed immediately with Drew Brees feeding him via throws and carries. He's ideally a WR5 for fantasy drafters but worth a reach if there's little left in the sleeper pool.

Saints | Drew Brees calls Jimmy Graham a hybrid

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 09:58:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees called TE Jimmy Graham a "hybrid" when asked if he saw Graham as a tight end or a receiver. Graham could file a grievance with the league after he was franchise tagged by the team as a tight end rather than a wide receiver. "He plays a different position than anybody in the league," Brees said. "So he'll be cutting edge with whatever he gets (paid). And everybody will try to compare themselves to him five years from now."

Saints | Drew Brees says Jimmy Graham is a TE

Wed, 29 Jan 2014 09:56:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he believes impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham should be considered a tight end if the team places the franchise tag on him. Graham may be asked to be categorized as a wide receiver because he lined up as a tight end only 33 percent of the time this season.
