Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham told reporters that he’s willing to play out the final season of his four-year, $26 million contract.

“You always want to be secure, but I’m OK with whatever because at the end of the day, next week we get that (Super Bowl) ring,” Graham said, via Philly.com’s Jeff McLane. “If we didn’t have the team we have then I would say let’s get secure, but we got a great team to do it again.

“… We’ll get (the contract) done however it go. I’m 30 years old and I understand this is a business, too. But I got to keep showing them that I’m just going to keep taking it up and go out on my terms.”

Graham is coming off a season in which he recorded a career-high 9.5 sacks to go along with 47 tackles and two forced fumbles.

He made his mark in Super Bowl LII after stripping 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 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.
