Brandon Graham hasn’t altered his career timeline after surviving his 13th season. The 34-year-old pass rusher told his wife Carlyne that he wants to play two more years before riding off into the sunset. Hopefully it’s a midnight green one but nothing is guaranteed in the NFL. It could have a different hue.

Graham, an unrestricted free agent without a contract, would love nothing better than to return to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2023. That’s where his heart is. That’s where his family is. But the final decision isn’t up to him as general manager Howie Roseman must balance a tight salary cap against his allegiance to a franchise legend. For Graham, the choice is an easy one.

“I told wifey two more years and then we gonna call it,” Graham said, via Lawrence Owen of Bleav Network. “I just want to say 15 years, hopefully with them Eagles the whole way, now that I’ve completed 13 going on 14 now, man. Just trying to take it year by year but I’m just really enjoying it because I’m still playing at a high level. And I know Father Time has his time for when it’s coming but right now, I’m just taking full advantage and still having fun.”

The former first-rounder out of Michigan has shown no signs of regression. Quite the opposite. He set a new career high in sacks last season (11), moving him up into fourth place on the Eagles’ all-time franchise list (70). He probably can’t catch leader Reggie White (124), but two more seasons of double-digit sacks could move him ahead of Trent Cole (85.5) at No. 2. That, and Graham would relish the opportunity to hoist the Lombardi Trophy again and lead another parade down Broad Street.
