Brandon Graham not sweating contract extension

Brandon Graham wants a new deal. He has made that clear.

But the Eagles defensive end knows if he plays well, the contract will take care of itself.

Pederson, asked about the fans’ support in general, replied: We have the greatest fans in the NFL… Our true fans, they’re beside us, we’re beside them. We love everything about the people who come and watch us and support us, whether it’s in training camp or in the stadium. I can’t say enough good things about what our fans have done for us. The support, the love we felt all offseason and we continue to feel.

Nobody was talking about it, Pederson said. Nobody. It’s over. It’s behind us. We’re moving on.

The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that Pittsburgh has signed tackle Bryce Harris and tight end Ryan Malleck. The team also placed tackle Jerald Hawkins and tight end Jake McGee on injured reserve.

Hawkins tore his quad last week, which is also when McGee tore his Achilles.

Harris has played 37 of his 38 career games with the Saints with the first 34 coming from 2012-2014 and the last three coming last season after much bouncing between teams in the intervening years. He gives the team an experienced option to take over swing tackle duties from Hawkins, although they also drafted Chukwuma Okorafor in the third round this year.

Malleck spent February-May with the Steelers last year and moved on to stints with the Ravens and Texans. He played in the final two games of the year for Houston and caught one pass for three yards.
