Glad to hear it. If we can afford him he's a great asset, regardless of his official designation, and should be paid for his production, much like any position including special teams.

4 years $40 Million, $21 mill guaranteed. I can live with that. About what I was hoping for, not too much bank breaking.

I remember most of us were shooting for about 9.5 a year, just a bit over Gronk's salary because Graham has a better injury history. I can totally live with $10m per year. I was expecting closer to 11 per year, honestly.

I love the deal.

I like it a lot. It was made out to look like he was going to get a humungous contract never before seen but this is very reasonable and I'm really glad everyone can focus on the season now.

Per a source with knowledge of the contract, Graham received $12 million to sign, along with a $1 million base salary for 2014. Thatís $13 million in the first year (math!) and a cap number of $4 million.
