Staying with Eagles

March 1, 2019
Graham is signing a three-year contract to stay with the Eagles, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
ANALYSIS
The 2010 first-round pick has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, playing out his rookie contract followed by a four-year, $26 million deal. While never quite dominant as a pass rusher, Graham offers a nice mixture of durability, consistency and versatility, with five straight seasons recording at least 39 tackles, four sacks and 15 appearances. He'll celebrate his 31st birthday in April and should be locked in as a starter at defensive end for the Eagles.

Watching the Eagles pass rush last year was like watching a pack of wolves fight over a single deer. Graham was in the backfield constantly, but there's only one sack to go around each play. That's how he managed to total just 15 sacks over the last two years despite ranking among the league leaders in pressure forced. It's generally encouraging, though, that Graham posted 9.5 sacks last year on just 666 snaps. If you prorate that production over the 764 snaps he played in 2016, you'd get about 11 sacks.
Graham has not turned into the standout sack producer that was expected when he was drafted 13th overall in 2010, but he still took a big step forward last season. He was credited by Pro Football Focus with 83 pressures despite notching just 5.5 sack, also adding a career-high 59 tackles while forcing multiple fumbles for a third straight year. He wants a new contract as a result, so he needs to be monitored for holdout risk this summer. But so long as he is on the field for Philadelphia it's likely he turns at least a handful of those pressures into sacks this year.
Largely considered a disappointment while miscast as a 3-4 outside linebacker the last three years, Graham should finally show his true form as Philadelphia switches to a 4-3 defense this year, allowing Graham to move to end. While he eventually figured out how to play in the 3-4, 4-3 end is Graham's natural position, and playing next to the fine tackle tandem of Logan and Cox while playing opposite Connor Barwin should result in a favorable situation for Graham. He should face single-teams and make the most of the opportunity while his line-mates collapse the pocket.
After arguably his best season in the midnight green, Graham signed a four-year deal in March and is slated to step in for the departed Trent Cole at starting outside linebacker. He should see starter-level snaps this year as he looks to top his 2014 campaign, which featured 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles as a rotation player.
Graham has the ability to make an impact as a pass rusher in the NFL, but he's proven a poor fit in Philadelphia's 3-4. He might get traded in the near future.
Graham will be Philadelphia's top backup at outside linebacker, behind Trent Cole and Connor Barwin. Despite his backup designation, it could truthfully be a timeshare between the three, as Graham might actually be the most disruptive out of the trio. He's not likely to get on the IDP radar, however.
Although he's a promising talent and former 13th overall pick, Graham has had knee issues (including microfracture surgery) and is unlikely to see many snaps at end this year with Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Philip Hunt and Vinny Curry all in town.
Likely to start the season on the PUP list due to his knee injury from 2010. Will serve as a rotational player upon his return.
Graham will be in a rotation, but he could start as Philadelphia's left defensive end during his rookie season.
