NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints and tight end Jimmy Graham have resolved their differences. The club has confirmed that the two sides have agreed to a multiyear contract. Graham skipped all of the Saints’ voluntary and mandatory practices and workouts — and challenged the NFL’s franchise tag process through arbitration.
The NFL Players Association filed a grievance, contending Graham was used as a wide receiver often enough to qualify for the more lucrative receiver tag, worth about $5 million a year more than the $7 million tag for a tight end.
