Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham is expected to show for organized team activities despite publicly expressing his desire for a new contract, according to a published report.
Tim McManus of ESPN.com reported that Graham is expected to show up at the NovaCare Complex on Monday as the Eagles begin OTAs, but he will not participate as he recovers from an ankle procedure performed on May 1.
Graham is entering the final season of a four-year deal that will pay him a base salary of $7 million in 2018.
The 30-year-old made his mark in Super Bowl LII after stripping Patriots quarterback Tom Brady of the football with 2:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, helping the Eagles preserve a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots.
Graham recorded a career-best 9.5 sacks last season and played an integral role on Philadelphia's top-ranked rush defense. He has collected 277 tackles and 38.5 sacks in 111 career games since being selected by the Eagles with the 13th overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.
