Make no mistake about it: Brandon Graham will become a Free Agent and test the market. He wants one more big contract before he retires in a few years. Graham did say that if the offers are close enough, that he would come back to Philadelphia on a slight discount. If a different team offers a massive contract, Graham will leave the city he has called home since 2010. It would be tough to see, but there would be no hard feelings for Graham making a business decision.
However, even if he does leave to play football in a new city, we might not have seen the last of Graham. On locker clean-out day, Graham told beat reporters that he sees himself taking a job in media once his playing career is over.
"You've got to take advantage of what we did here, the connections we’ve made...I am going to continue loving on Philly and I want that same love coming back. When I hear from guys like [Brian Dawkins], guys who come back, they always say, 'Why leave?' "
After telling reporters his plans after football, Graham made it clear that he would like to take job in media in Philadelphia, and will call the "City of Brotherly Love" his forever home.
"Philly is my home, when I am done, it’s a no brainer."
He wouldn't be the first former Eagle to take a job with Philadelphia media after his football career. Ron Jaworski, Brian Westbrook, Ike Reese, Hollis Thomas, Vai Sikahema, and Barrett Brooks all put on Eagles uniforms and later received jobs with news stations and radio stations in the city.
