Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports
The New Orleans Saints and Jimmy Graham have agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal that includes $21 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.
quote:

The deal makes Graham the highest-paid tight end in NFL history, eclipsing the deal signed in 2008 by former Indianapolis Colt Dallas Clark, who got $27.55 million in the first three years of that deal.

The two sides came down to the wire before the Tuesday 4 p.m. ET deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term contracts. But the fact that they reached a deal is a good sign that there won't be any lingering animosity from the negotiations, which included a groundbreaking arbitration hearing in which Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis testified against Graham's wide receiver argument.
