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


Big win for the Saints, big loss for flex TEs.

Wow nice for us. Hope they agree to a long term deal soon now! Thought the CBA was pretty clear here and he would be ranked as a Receiver...

So did I, but this just means that part of the duties of a TE is to take snaps in the slot and out wide to create mismatches.

Harper, looks like you were right. Please season the crow well for me, I really rosemary and olive oil.

I hope htey end up reaching a deal that pays him 9.5 mil average. That's right down the middle for the two tags.

You'll get salt and pepper and you'll like it.
