Brandon Graham: The Most Under-Appreciated Eagle

It's incomprehensible that the Eagles almost let Brandon Graham slip away. That Graham was close to becoming a New York Giant this past March, as close as you can be without applying a signature to a contract, is positively astounding. On March 11, the second day of free agency, the Eagles managed to lure Graham back into the nest with a four-year, $26M deal in which just over...
