The Times-Picayune says it appears Jimmy Graham is in "prime position" to ask for a new contract.
Despite a drop-littered year, Graham was among the most underpaid players in the league this year at $540,000. With his rookie contract set to expire after the 2013 season, the time to lock him up is coming. Over the last two seasons, Graham has caught 184 passes for 2,292 yards and 20 touchdowns. He figures to be asking for something in the neighborhood of the eight-year, $55.2 million deal Rob Gronkowski got from the Patriots last summer.
