Eagles’ Brandon Graham on future: “I’m definitely playing”
When the season ends, the Philadelphia Eagles will have some very tough decisions to make when the season ends on their 20 free agents.
However, one guy that wants to play again is Brandon Graham.
Graham, who is having one of his best seasons during his age 34 season, was a 2010 first-round pick by the Eagles and tells Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio that he wants to play a couple more seasons.
When asked by Gelb if the Super Bowl would be his final game Graham was definitive in his answer.
"Nah man," Graham answered. "My wife said potentially as an Eagles. We don't know my future because I'm on a one-year deal. She (his wife) knows I want to play a couple more years. Who knows what will happen, I'm hoping everything works out, but I'm definitely playing."
Graham had a career best 11 sacks in 2022 after missing most of the 2021 season with a torn Achilles suffered last September.
"He'll be back," predicted Geoff Mosher from Inside the Birds on Football at Four on Wednesday.
He has continued to play at a high level, but the Eagles have a lot of decisions to make, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
In addition to Graham, the team has multiple free agents on defense they will need to made decisions on including: Fletcher Cox, Marcus Epps, CJ Gardner-Johnson, James Bradberry, T.J. Edwards, Kyzir White and Javon Hargrave.
It will be interesting to see if Graham, who has maybe the biggest play in Philadelphia Eagles history, will be back next season. Another thing to keep in mind, he was GM Howie Roseman's first ever draft pick back in 2010, which could lead him to bring him back for another year.
