This was a big topic during the 2017-18 season, Brandon Graham. Back around December, the Philadelphia Eagles were trying to meet agreements with DE Brandon Graham who had 9.5 sacks this season. They never did, now the topic is brought up again. This past year Graham was paid a little under $7 million, next year he’ll be paid that exact amount.
Looking at his stats, Brandon Graham does indeed deserve more money. If the Eagles are willing to pay Timmy Jernigan more than $10 million every year for the next 3 years, then Brandon Graham deserves about that amount.
Earlier this week, Brandon Graham was interviewed on NBC Sports Philadelphia, and stated, “For me, it’s all about getting as much as you can while you can play because when it’s over, it’s over. I know Howie [Roseman] and those guys, if they want me here, they’re going to make sure that they get me here. For me, I want to be here. Everybody knows I want to be here…They see the passion I have, and I’m happy to be able to bring the trophy back to Philly. Now, it’s just all about just making sense, just getting me protected for the future. Because obviously I want to retire here and I know I’m going to retire here because I’ve been here a long time. I would love to retire here. It’s all on what they want to do. I’m just going to embrace it, whatever it is.”

Not too greedy because he indeed deserves more money, but…
