Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints agree to deal


It appears that Jimmy Graham and the New Orleans Saints have struck a long-term accord. Graham tweeted a celebratory thank-you tweet to his fans in New Orleans and while it’s not impossible that he could be referring to a particularly thrilling game of Kan Jam, it’s safer to assume that Graham will be staying in the Bayou for the foreseeable future.

Graham tweeted the following early Tuesday morning:

‘It’s official’ followed by an exclamatory statement usually isn’t one that a player uses after having made an appeal in an arbitration hearing, which is why it was safe to assume Graham signed. NFL Insider Adam Schefter confirmed the report hours later.

If that holds, the Saints have their quarterback and his favorite target locked down long-term, ensuring New Orleans will once again sport one of the best offenses in the league. The team can look to training camp without distractions as they aim to return to the Super Bowl after having given champion Seattle all it could handle in the divisional round last year.
