Default Drew Brees Screws Over Jimmy Graham

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ot-a-receiver/

What else do expect from the Defender of Bountygate? This was a complete douchebag move by Breesus, but he already got his massive contract but he will screw anyone else over who is trying get theirs. had Cam Newton done this there would be shitstorm of epic proportions.

The quote is out of context. The questioning likely had nothing to do with what he should be counted as during the franchise tag process.

Default Re: Drew Brees Screws Over Jimmy Graham

Why does Brees even need to comment on it anyway, its Graham's contract not his. Let's not forget Graham is the reason why Brees puts up all those numbers. Graham's numbers are better then a lot of the top level WRs. During the lockout Brees was very vocal about getting the lower paid players more money well next season Brees is due 18.5 million , well if he really cares so much about the lower he would take a salary cut but he won't because he really doesn't care about anyone but himself. Either put up or shut up there is no other option. This is an example of hypocrisy but no one says a word about Breesus but on here especially people would go after Cam Newton in a heart beat. But as a Panther fan. SCREW THE TAINTS*****

Just goes to show the flaw in the system where your pay is defined by your "position" as opposed to your "value". Instead of fixing the flaw, it will be done with incentives instead of base pay.

It's really basic business principles.

Still waiting for Brees to "get his"
I didn't see the Panthers injure him.

For the purposes of getting the man more money for being such a key part of that offense, Drew Brees could have given the man the WR title.

Default Re: Drew Brees Screws Over Jimmy Graham

He's a TE... If he wanted to be considered a receiver than he wouldn't be 270 lbs. He would drop to 240 or so. He looks pretty lean for 270 so that would probably be pretty hard for him.

The context isn't provided, but the question was probably just "Is Graham a TE or a WR," which Brees answered factually, Graham is a TE. To address your comment about brees' numbers, that is false. Brees was a top QB well before Graham even entered the league. Also I don't see why people attack the character of another person just because they don't want to take a paycut. Just because he makes an exorbitant amount of money doesn't make him any less deserving. If you work hard to make your money you wouldn't advocate a paycut so a coworker can get his big pay day. This just sounds like sour grapes from a panthers fan

This is what it all comes down to. He is pissed that Breez won a Super Bowl with the Saints while he is stuck knowing that Cam will never come close to winning a Super Bowl for the Panthers.

Gramah is a TE and his success is due to Breez more than Breez' success being due to Gramah.

From the article, I guess this is what makes it contentious:

According to Pro Football Focus, Graham lined up as a tight end only 33 percent of the time in 2013.
