      Good.  This starts cutting into the Saints cap room to have to pay a TE so much money.  You knew they werent going to trade him and didnt want to risk a holdout

      Jimmy Graham - TE - SaintsSaints signed TE Jimmy Graham to a four-year, $40 million contract that contains $21 million guaranteed.Deadlines spur action. The two sides agreed to the deal hours before the 4 PM ET deadline on Tuesday afternoon. Graham is now the league's highest-paid tight end at $10 million per year, besting Rob Gronkowski's $9 million annual rate. His $21 million guaranteed is $5 million more than Jared Cook and Dennis Pitta recently received from the Rams and Ravens, respectively. Graham is now locked up through his age-31 season and remains fantasy's top tight end.Source: Jimmy Graham on Twitter Jul 15 - 9:05 AM

      I was hoping it would all fall apart for them. Dang.And barron isn't guarding up squat. He can't defend graham and was a wasted pick.

      Disagree. And Graham was a steal at that price. That isn't good news for Tampa.

      Yeah. The price isn’t an issue for them.That guy is going to run over barron for years though.

      If used correctly, Barron is a very good player. He should be played exclusively on TE and RB on 3rd down passing situations. He has done well against Graham and other TEs/RB in coverage. He has not and will not do well as a deep safety against #1 WR or speedy slot guys. We've seen Barron flash because he has unique skills. We haven't seen domination because he is not a true safety and is being played as one. The guy is a hybrid S/LB and won't reach his potential until he has a coach that can figure out how to match him up in our benefit on a regular basis. He is a box player and has skill to cover TE and the size/strength to tackle them. Those two combinations are not common.
