It seems the New Orleans Saints are trying to make nice with Jimmy Graham after an arbitrator deemed him a tight end for franchise tag purposes.
Saints star quarterback Drew Brees told CanalStreetChronicles.com, that Graham has revolutionized the tight end position.
“It doesn’t really matter,” Brees toldCanalStreetChronicles.com last week about Graham being a tight end. “At the end of the day, Jimmy Graham has revolutionized the position. He’s a guy who is so talented at so many things you know and obviously he’s a big part of our offense and I hope that they’re able to reach a long-term agreement here sooner than later.”
Graham is expected to get the largest contract for a tight end in NFL history.
