Philadelphia Eagles: 3 Things we’d like to forget about Brandon Graham
It’s been a roller coaster ride, to say the least, for Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham.
It’s hard to bring up the Philadelphia Eagles these days without mentioning the enigma that is Brandon Graham. Low sack totals, contract talks and unexpected holdouts will do that for you. If you’ve been living under a rock or you’re a casual fan of the NFL, you may be unaware of some of the reasons why, so let us get you up to speed.
Mr. Graham, following a season that was both productive and easy to criticize, caught the attention of most fans by deciding not to show up for off-season team activities, and the entire world (or at least the portion of it that contains Eagles fans) went bananas. Regardless of what side you’re on, certain things can’t be ignored.
Number one, Graham is now an important cog in the Eagles defense. If this team does anything this season, especially on defense, Graham figures to play a key role in the result. Number two, he’s a likable and a stand-up guy. He doesn’t alienate teammates. He doesn’t get arrested.
Still, even the best of guys can be critiqued. We’ve identified the three biggest marks on Graham’s resume so far. There’s no time like the present to get into it.
