Report: Jimmy Graham's contract is 3 years, $30 million from Packers

(WVUE) - Jimmy Graham will get paid three years, $30 million according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapaport. The former Saint will earn $22 million over the first two years.

Yesterday it was reported Graham and the Saints had been seriously discussing a reunion, but talks stalled over the last several hours according to a tweet by ESPN's Dianna Russini. Both sides are still hoping to reach agreement according to the tweet. Other teams including the Packers were in the hunt.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees told ESPN's Mike Triplett he wanted Graham back in the Black and Gold.

"All I'll say is I would love nothing more than to have Jimmy back. He'd be an even better fit now than he was when he first started with us," Brees told Triplett.
