 METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The NFL Players Association confirms that the union has filed a grievance on behalf of Jimmy Graham concerning the Saints tight end's franchise tag designation.
At issue is whether the NFL was correct to apply the tight end tag to Graham or whether Graham should have received the more lucrative wide receiver tag, a difference of $5 million.
Wording in the current collective bargaining agreement states that a player should be tagged according to the position at which he lined up most often. Graham and his agent, Jimmy Sexton, are contending that the frequency with which Graham lined up split out from the line merits the $12.3 million receiver's franchise tag, not the $7 million tight end tag.
No date for a grievance hearing has been set.
