Drew Brees: ‘I Want Jimmy Graham Back!’


January 22, 2014; Ko

Drew Brees caught some heat earlier this week for his remarks about Jimmy Graham, specifically around his contract situation heading into the offseason. Whether Drew meant it in a negative aspect is extremely questionable. However, the ‘manufactured drama’ it caused set things in motion for it to be interpreted negatively.

Brees would appear on The Dan Patrick Show, continuing his media tour for the week, and Brees would address the situation.

"“I didn’t realize someone was taking that and choosing to make it a contract discussion. I can tell you this: I would stand up on your table right now and say, ‘I want to have Jimmy Graham back.’ Does that make things better?” -Drew Brees"

Talk is cheap, right? Actions speak louder than words is the saying.

Drew Brees jumped on Dan Patrick’s table, pumped his fists in the air, and shouted, “I want Jimmy Graham back!”

Dan Patrick would go on to ask Brees if he were willing to give some of his own money to Graham, to which Brees said, “If he needed some, I would.”

While it’s a nice gesture, it obviously would be unlikely to come to that. However, if you ever thought there was going to be an insane amount of trouble between the two, your overreactions just got squashed, and Jimmy Graham will still be a member of the Saints in 2014, come hell or high water.
