Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was clearly not pleased with the hotel room he was assigned at the start of training camp on Wednesday, as evidenced by this video recorded by running back Pierre Thomas. Graham’s digs at The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia for the next few weeks are plastered wall-to-wall (including the ceiling) with pink floral wallpaper that you’re way more likely to find at your grandmother’s house than at an NFL pre-season camp.
Judging from Thomas’ “they got you so good” comments in the video, this might have been a prank pulled on the tight end. It could possibly be a result of Graham’s contract dispute with the team this offseason in which it was debated whether he should be paid as a tight end or wide receiver.
Eventually, Graham signed a four-year, $40 million contract extension making him the highest paid tight end in the league. Maybe floral wallpaper hotel rooms was an overlooked detail in the fine print.
