I was doing my usual trolling of ESPN, Stampede Blue, and the brand spankin new Colts Camp and came across a piece by Ed Werder about Jimmy.

Graham in a Packer uniform would be too good to be true. Jimmy should just play for the franchise tag amount this year. Then we can pay him what he is worth next year. Thompson has already proven he is willing to pay a TE much more than the market rate. Heck, Graham is tagged to make less than Finley was being paid.

There can not be any good feeling there for him and a change of teams just may be for the best.If this kid Colt and our draft pick Richard Rogers works out well, they may be able to save the cash for a position of bigger need but Graham would be a pretty sweet move ( for us or almost any other team)

Just a few years ago plenty of Packer fans and Ted Thompson thought the TE need was worth 7.5 million per year for TE with a fraction of Graham's production. Why would a productive TE not be worth a lot more?

Assuming that the franchise tag argument holds, I don't see him playing with anyone other than the Saints this year. While it would be great for the Packers to sign him to an offer sheet, and I think he would be worth whatever they agreed on, the two first round picks it would cost in addition would be too high of a price to pay.

That's why I want him to play for the tag amount this year. I don't want the Packers to give up two first round picks, but I would love to see him in a Packer uniform.

As great as Graham is,your right 2 1st is a huge price to pay,,especially if this kid from Oregon ( who projected to be a late 1st) keeps his head together and produces like he was projected to AND with Richard Rodgers ( who has had some solid workouts and showed alot according to whats been said) is a preview to come,they are pretty solid there.
Factor in Nelson who will be re signed before the season starts ( nice raise)
Cobb is a FA, if Tramon Williams plays in 14 like he did the final few games and playoffs,im sure TT would love to re sign him,( although his cap number this year is 9M and im sure he wont see that again). IF Peppers plays well and they decide to p..u. his 2nd year he goes from 3.5M in cap to close to 10M ( although i really dont see that happening But if Peppers impresses,i can see Peppers wanting to stay and take a bit less but he will get a raise from 14) Du Juan Harris is a FA,,so is Bulaga,Barclay,Sherrod ( granted Bulaga or Sherrod are not 100% to be here in 2014 either) Boykin is a RFA so he will get a nice raise as well and Raji is back at NT where he belongs and not DE where hes been the past 2 seasons SO we just may see Raji back to 10 form since hes back where he started and id think he stronger at NT then DE.
Lots to consider down the line

Jimmy Graham deserves a suitable team.He is a talented person. He is more a outstanding TE.Maybe the movement is good for him.I would love to see him in a Packer uniform.
