Brandon Graham on taking paycut to stay, “Not about money. I love Philly.”

Posted on March 10, 2023
Looks like many Philadelphia Eagles fans will get their wish on at least one Philly legend staying with the Eagles for the 2023 season.

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.
