NEW YORK — Brandon Graham is headed to Philadelphia, and if he were at Radio City Music Hall, he’d be getting his introduction to the Giants-Eagles rivalry.
The fans erupted in a chorus of boos, and began chanting “Philadelphia (stinks)” as soon as the Eagles traded up to the 13th spot.
When Graham’s name was called by Commissioner Roger Goodell, the jeers continued for several more minutes.
The Michigan standout will undoubtedly face a similar response when he visits the new Meadowlands Stadium in Week 15, but on draft night, at least, he was able to enjoy the festivities at home with his family, unencumbered by a slew of raucous Giants fans.
