Saints’ Jimmy Graham Loses Arbitration Case

Jimmy Graham

We recently reported, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham filed a grievance, claiming he should be paid the salary of a wide receiver, rather than a tight end. The difference is an estimated $5 million a year. The case went to arbitration. Nbcsports.com reports, the arbitrator has ruled against him. The Saints applied a one year franchise tag to the all-pro when terms couldn’t be agreed upon. This would require the team to pay him the average salary of the top 5 NFL tight ends. Graham contended he should be treated as a wide receiver, because of where he lined up in the majority of plays while on the field. Graham was drafted as a tight end. He’s listed as a tight end on the Saints’ roster, and was named all pro at that position. His Twitter page describes him as a tight end.
