James Graham could be forced to retire from NRL if negotiations fall through

Inspirational Canterbury skipper James Graham accepts there is a chance he may be moved on by the Bulldogs for the 2018 season as the club tries to unravel their web of roster woes.

Graham has been linked to the St George Illawarra Dragons but the big Englishman says he hasn’t met with the Saints or any other club.

“That’s just paper talk at the minute,” Graham told Fox Sports NRL 360.

“The current situation at Canterbury is quite delicate. It’s quite clear that some current contracted players are going to have to move on in order for us to fundamentally play for points next year.”

Graham may be forced to retire from the NRL if a deal isn’t done soon.

It’s been reported the Dragons are set to pull their offer for Graham in favour of chasing Kiwi prop Adam Blair while the Newcastle Knights are another side linked to Graham.

“Talk to other clubs at the minute is secondary. The major talks I’m having is with myself. I’m figuring a few things out. Negotiations going on are internal rather than external.

“I’ve got to get a few things right in my head and make a decision moving forward for my career.”
