Report: Saints Fielding Trade Offers For Players Including TE Jimmy Graham

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the New Orleans Saints have been open to shopping a number of their players including TE Jimmy Graham.

  • Rapoport adds that Graham has a $5 million roster bonus due in two days, so the clocking is ticking for them to find a trade partner if they want to go this route.

Graham, 28, just signed a four-year, $40 million contract that included $20.9 million guaranteed with the Saints in July of last year.

He stands to make base salaries of $2.9 million (2015), $8.9 million (2016), and $7.9 million (2017) over the remaining three years of the agreement.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Graham would free up $2 million in available cap space while creating $9 million in dead money.

Given the limited cap saving from this trade, it would really be surprising to see them trade Graham.

Last year, Graham appeared in 16 games for the Saints and caught 85 passes for 889 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns.
