  • Pretty sure that would not be possible because free agency hasnt started yet.

  • Looks like DeAndre Hopkins wishful thinking...extending the invitation.
    Not sure I'd like to see that happen.

  • Man I hope not. Not really sure why everyone loves the idea of trying to jettison some of our top talent for drafts picks that could very likely turn into Aaron Curry and Malik McDowell.

    This is called reading way too much into a harmless advertisement from one player to another lol.

  • It would suck if he leaves(probably will) but at least he goes to the AFC

    Weird post? We get nothing for Graham, he is a free agent. Maybe a comp pick next year, but the reason people are not fighting this is because he is soft, doesn't fit a run 1st team, and we absolutely cannot afford him. Oh and Russell / Bevell taking 3 years to figure out how to throw a TD pass to him didn't help either.

    Yeah, agree. I'm not even really sure his positives outweigh his negatives. IMO we should have no interest in a TE that cannot block and weirdly enough we have/had two that cannot (jury's still out even if Vannett can block or not).

  • Good for him.
    At least Bill O'Brien knows how to use him.

    Or the draft picks could turn into JJ Watt or Jalen Ramsey

  • Graham seems like a good dude. He's just not a real TE. You put him in a passing offense and he might be worth 10M lining up at mostly Slot and WR while maybe taking a few snaps here and there as a Move TE or H-Back.

    You would think that with the Hawks passing the ball 60% of the time (or more, if you discount RW scrambles) that we'd have some almost indefensible plays to his tall arse that were real quick hitters in...basically just some high efficiency play takes a 3 step drop and throw in less than 2 seconds. It's just never happened though. We're not that team.

    Yeah because he's going to make a ton of money being Gronk's backup.

  • McDaniels would find plenty of ways to get them both on the field. I don't think they'd pay Jimmy in the $8-10M range, but who knows? Also, Gronk gets hurt a lot and was contemplating retirement after the SB so having another TE1 would be pretty helpful for NE. Of course, I highly doubt they'd sign him, it just doesn't seem like the kind of thing NE does.

    Aaron Hernandez made a lot of money being Gronk's backup. They have been looking for his replacement ever since.

    Not sure "backup" is the right word. They rolled out two tight-end sets a LOT with Hernandez.

  • I'd be fine keeping Jimmy and using him as a WR, but he was a liability since the 'brain trust' had him blocking so much. Don't see much changing w/ schottenheimer and Pete

    Putting Baldwin w/ his hand in the ground at the end of the line would be better than 0 effort Jimmy.

    I'm just saying, they would likely have the same idea if they signed Graham. They have been looking for that mismatch 2nd TE for a while (Bennett, Allen) and they will pay a 2nd TE a lot if they can find the right guy.
