Brandon Graham OK with playing out Eagles contract

The lure of a championship can change career paths for many across multiple sports. It can also keep key players around in situations in which they’d otherwise depart.

Consider Brandon Graham ‘s situation to be the latter. The veteran defensive end, who’s entering the final year of his four-year, $26 million deal, said as much Thursday.

While the cause of the crash remains under investigation, Aiken, 26, was reportedly pronounced dead at Broward Medical Center.

Aiken overcame tragedy to enjoy a solid career and earn his degree at Rutgers, playing in 34 games in the Scarlet Knights’ defensive backfield. The 5-11, 190-pounder out of┬áChaminade High School in Hollywood, Fla., was a defensive standout on Rutgers’ most recent bowl team, Brett Favre Youth Jersey starting eight of the 13 games he played in at free safety while posting a career-best 51 tackles.

In a season-opening win at Washington State, Aiken had seven solo tackles, including a forced Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey fumble on a punt return to help setup the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter, and a fourth-down pass breakup to seal the win on the final defensive series.

Nevertheless, quarterback Eli Manning liked what he saw from his top receiving threat.

During a Friday one-on-one interview with NFL Network’s Rhett Lewis while at the annual Manning Passing Academy on the campus of Nicholls State in Louisiana, Manning revealed he and Beckham got together after a Giants ‘ minicamp camp practice and ran a few routes.

He looks great, Manning said. He looks healthy.

Manning’s proclamation provides good news ahead of training camp, and the Giants appear primed to get the best out of Beckham on the field.

With a fully healthy Beckham, the Giants have one of the league’s elite wide receivers.
