Earlier on Tuesday, Brandon Graham posted a video of himself at the Philadelphia Eagles’ NovaCare Complex, signaling the end of his “holdout” for a new contract. Now Graham is denying a holdout ever even took place via his official Twitter account.
Shortly after news of Graham’s “holdout” was reported last week, multiple conflicting reports emerged. It turns out those reports were right.
So was all of this a fabricated story? I don’t know if I’d go that far. I wouldn’t doubt that Graham’s agent Joel Segal, may have said something to the Eagles about his client’s contract. Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman certainly didn’t deny that that happened. And it’s easy to see why Graham and/or his agent would say something. Vinny Curry, who played 40% of the team’s defensive snaps last season and only had 2.5 sacks, is making more than Graham.
But Graham claims he doesn’t have an issue with contract so everything’s good for now. He’s back at practice and that’s good news for the Eagles.
