Philadelphia's front office reportedly approached Graham's camp with a four-year contract offer late in the season, but the underutilized former first-round draft pick is excited to test his value on the open market.
Graham, 26, is now seeking a four-year deal worth roughly $30 million with $20 million in guarantees, reports CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher.
It's understandable that Graham would be aiming high in contract talks.
Graham's efficiency isn't a one-year phenomenon. Over the past three seasons, he is PFF's highest-rated edge defender per 100 snaps.
It doesn't hurt that Graham has been successful in multiple schemes, has been solid against the run, has shown a knack for forcing fumbles and is an asset on special teams.
