Huge news for the Philadelphia Eagles…
Graham was set to have no shortage of suitors if he were to make it to free agency.
Keeping Graham is a huge move for a team that will look to get back to the playoffs/Super Bowl in 2019. He was very productive last season despite coming off ankle surgery, and only got stronger as the season went on.
It’s big money, but pass rusher was one of the biggest question marks entering this off-season for the Eagles. They can still look to add another through the draft, but now the situation isn’t nearly as dire. They will likely decline the option on Tim Jernigan soon, so that will clear up a lot of cap space. They will still need to replenish their depth, and of course keep an eye on the Chris Long situation.
