Jimmy Graham franchise tag

Who knew that social media and Twitter could have such a huge impact on a franchise tag grievance hearing.

The New Orleans Saints put a franchise tag on Jimmy Graham as a tight end, which translates to a salary worth $7 million.  Graham filed a grievance that he should be franchised as a wide receiver, which translates to a salary worth $12.7 million.

 Graham tells people all the time that receiver is the position he plays.  The Saints say Graham is a tight end and they are using his Twitter page and bio as proof.

What argument are the Saints using during the hearings?

Graham calls himself a tight end in his Twitter bio and on his personal website.

graham-tight-end

Graham does play the wide receiver position more than tight end, but the Saints are hoping that his online acknowledgement of being a tight end will help them in the end.
