Brandon Graham says he deserves to be a starter

(1/7/2014) Eagles outside linebacker Brandon Graham, who had four sacks playing just 27 percent of the defensive snaps, told CSNPhilly.com that he deserves to be a starter, in Philadelphia or elsewhere.
“My biggest thing is I just want to be a starter and I definitely deserve that much,” Graham said. “As long as I keep working, I know that day will come.
“I feel real good going into next season. I think I’ve got pretty good film out there.”
The Eagles' first-round pick in 2010, Graham converted to linebacker when Philly switched to a 3-4. He's more suited to play 4-3 defensive end, but still has two years left on his contract. According to the report, Graham would become expendable if Philly drafts a pure 3-4 edge pass rusher.
