Jimmy Graham isn’t happy with the Saints’ offseason thus far

Jimmy GrahamThe New Orleans Saints’ offense is going to have a different look when the 2014 season rolls around.

Lance Moore, his 37 receptions, and 457 yards this past season were released on Friday. So was running back, and all-purpose extraordinaire, Darren Sproles. That’s another 220 rushing yards, 71 catches, and 604 receiving yards out the door.

Among those who will be suiting up for the Saints later this year is Jimmy Graham. Just because the two-time Pro Bowler is safe from the axe doesn’t mean he’s happy with what what has transpired to this point.

The two-time Pro Bowler took to his Twitter account Friday to express his displeasure with the way the offseason has unfolded thus far.

Graham, of course, had the franchise tag placed on him by the Saints and was designated as a tight end. The difference between being tagged as tight end compared to a wide receiver (which Graham would prefer) is a little over $5 million. That’s significant.

The possibility of Jimmy Graham and the Saints agreeing to a long-term contract extension does exist. Extra room under the salary cap would help make that a reality.
