Jimmy Graham to File Grievance If He’s Franchise Tagged as TE
This is going to be an interesting case.
Graham is a tight end who lines up as wide receiver the majority of the time. Fine print in the CBA says franchise tags are based on % of plays you play the most at, so Graham is going to have a pretty strong case in my opinion.
No progress yet for Jimmy Graham and #Saints. If, as expected, he’s tagged as a TE, expect an immediate grievance to be tagged as a WR

There is a huge money difference almost $5 million in the TE and WR Franchise Tags, so it is worth fighting for.
