NEW ORLEANS, La. -- One key player on the Black and Gold's roster is getting division-wide recognition this week, as Jimmy Graham was named the NFC player of the week.

The Arizona Cardinals tried to play Graham man-to-man Sunday, and he responded with a 9-catch, 134-yard, two-touchdown performance.

Pro Football Weekly reported earlier this week that the Saints had made a long-term contract offer to Graham, but that his camp hadn't responded yet.

WWL Radio's Mike Detillier says a long-term deal will get done before the end of the season, and it will be the richest deal for a tight end in NFL history.
