The New Orleans Saints have no intentions of losing star tight end Jimmy Graham.

Graham who’s rookie deal has expired, has turned into a star, and is highly coveted.  The Saints can sign Graham to a long-term deal or they can use the franchise tag on him.

It’s still a tricky situation because Graham, who’s extremely versatile, can be franchised as a tight end or wide receiver.

Speaking at the Senior Bowl on Tuesday, Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said, via WWL-TV, that the Saints would use the franchise tag on Graham if they are unable to reach agreement on a longer deal.

Loomis also said they’d franchise him as a tight end, since he was drafted as one and, in the mind of the team, remains one.
