Brandon Graham is staying in Philly for another year. The homegrown defensive end said he and the Eagles have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, confirming an earlier ESPN report. Graham’s deal is worth up to $6 million.
”It ain’t really about the money for me right now,” Graham said. “It’s just more about coming back. I don’t want to miss this run we about to go on together. I just love what we got here. My loyalty is most important at this point. I love Philly and I’m happy to be a part of this organization. It was pretty much a no-brainer. I told my agent, ‘Get it done.’”
When asked about the paycut BG said:
“It wasn’t about the money. I love Philly. I don’t want to miss a championship with Jalen. Jalen is the man. I just told my agent make it happen.”
Graham was eligible to become a free agent next Wednesday, but he opted to return for a 14th season for a hefty paycut, which will match Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik for the most seasons by a player in team history.
