Will The Seahawks Give Jimmy Graham A New Contract?
Read More on Jimmy Graham and the Seahawks……..
Graham is entering the final season of a four-year, $40 million deal he signed with the Saints in 2014 that Seattle inherited when it acquired him for Unger in 2015.
That contract continues to make Graham the NFL’s highest-paid tight end — Kansas City’s Travis Kelce is next at $9.368 million per year.
Though the Seahawks could try to extend Graham, who will turn 32 during the 2018 season, an increasingly popular thought is that Seattle might just place the franchise tag on him.
The franchise-tag number is calculated on the average of the top five salaries at that position, or 120 percent of the player’s previous salary, whichever is higher. In the case of Graham, that means Seattle could keep him for one more year at not a lot more than he is already making without committing for the long term.
“Exactly,’’ Corry said. “That makes sense.’’
