New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham said he isn't sure why Saints fans are adamant that the organization "Pay the Man!" when referencing his contract situation.

"You know that comment is funny" Graham said jokingly. "I get paid every two weeks here. I'm not really sure what everybody is talking about."

Of course Graham understands the fans are worried about him not having a long-term contract this season the final year of his current deal. Pro Football Talk reported earlier this week the Saints have offered Graham a contract extension and that the ball is in Graham's court.

Graham continued to preach Saturday how his singular focus remains football rather than stressing over a contract which could be the highest-paid deal ever for a tight end. Graham earned $1.9 million in his first three seasons and is scheduled to earn $1.323 million this season. He leads the team with 385 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

"I'm not really sure where all of these rumors are coming from" Graham said. "But for me that whole situation isn't important to me right now. I know I'm going to keep going out and do what I do.

"Every Sunday and Monday I'm going to go out and play football and play to the best of my abilities. The rest will take care of itself."

Graham said he's aware of how the Saints aren't shy about shelling out major cash to keep their talent from hopping elsewhere.
