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

If Jimmy Graham doesn't sign a long term deal by the 7/15 deadline, expect him to fight for a no franchise tag clause with his tender.

Judge Burbank: “Mr. Graham refers to himself as a tight end in social media that he controls (Twitter & Facebook) & his agents do so as well

The trickle down effect of the Graham decision hits a lot of players: Julius Thomas, Eric Ebron, etc. Wide-ranging precedent

Considering next step (appeal) RT @NFLPA: #NFLPA Statement on Jimmy Graham Franchise Tag Ruling: http://bit.ly/Vdj5Rg #Saints

There is a reference from @NFLPA in the ruling about whether Graham will accept the TE franchise tag. Possibility that he may not.

The #Saints can now franchise tag Jimmy Graham as a tight end at $7.053M. A savings of $5M vs a WR tag

The Jimmy Graham decision is out. Burbank has ruled he’s a tight end. The Saints have won
