graham-panthersI don’t believe either the Saints or Jimmy Graham want an arbitrator to decide whether the talented pass-catcher is called a tight end or a wide receiver. If the arbitrator rules Graham is a tight end, the Saints’ qualifying offer of $7 million stands, and team gains some immediate leverage in the bargaining of a new contract. If Graham wins, he would stand to receive a one-year qualifying offer of more than $12 million that represents an average salary of the top wide receivers.

Saints' Graham has arbitration hearing

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham and the New Orleans Saints met Tuesday for arbitration on his contract.

Graham filed a grievance through the players' union. He contends he should be considered a wide receiver, not a tight end, when the team designated him with the 2014 franchise tag. The difference in salary would be more than $5 million.

Arbitrator Stephen Burbank is conducting the meetings that also involve the NFL Players Association, the NFL's Management Council, and the Saints.
