An NFL source confirmed on Wednesday that New Orleans Saints star Jimmy Graham filed a grievance through the NFL Players Association to challenge whether he should be considered a tight end or wide receiver for franchise-tag purposes. Per ESPN:
The Saints placed the franchise tag on Graham in early March, and the NFL's management council ruled that he is a tight end, a position that has a mandatory tag salary of $7.05 million.
Graham, however, will claim that he should be considered a receiver because he lined up for 67 percent of his snaps either out wide or in the slot in 2013. If he wins, his franchise-tag salary will vault to $12.3 million.
More importantly, the winner of this debate will gain significant leverage in long-term contract negotiations.
