Default Re: Saints, Jimmy Graham, franchise tag, and position battle

This happened with Terrell Suggs and the Ravens in 2008. Suggs said he should be franchised as DE, and the Ravens said LB. Difference in tag amount was about $800K. The fact that there's no distinction between ILB and OLB for franchise tag purposes also muddied things up. They ended up splitting the difference and bumping up his tag amount by around $450K (With the blessing of all interested parties including the NFL and the NFLPA of course).

I'm guessing that's where this ends up.
