    JIMMY GRAHAM'S official position ruling!

    Jimmy Graham deemed tight end!

    Arbitrator Stephen Burbank ruled Wednesday that New Orleans Saints star Jimmy Graham is indeed a tight end, per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, who obtained a copy of the decision.

    Graham had filed a grievance arguing that he deserved to be designated as a wide receiver under the franchise tag because he spent more time out wide and in the slot than at the line of the scrimmage, as a traditional tight end.

    Jimmy ' s twitter account was the key factor in the judges decision.

    Now let's sign Jimmy to a $10M per contract

    Can't wait. Very excited to watch the evolution of both the offense and defense this season

    While I think it's silly to use Twitter to make the ruling, it was the right call. The fact is that Payton has Jimmy line up in positions to succeed and that is usually as a TE or in the slot where he is covered by slower and shorter defenders. He's also helped by having an elite QB. Jimmy is great, but he gets a lot of help from the Saints.

    I think Jimmy deserves something like 6/$60M. Regardless of what you think his position is (It is TE, btw), he's more valuable than any TE in the game and deserves top TE pay. That's top 10 WR pay.

    Hopefully he could put his pride aside and get a reasonable deal with the saints. He's got to realize that he's not getting more money then the saints will give.

    1. He can sit out the year and do nothing

    2. Play on the tag and risk getting injured. Say goodbye to that big money

    3. Take a 12-13 million dollar deal from a bad team. Teams that are good don't have that kind of money to throw at a TE. The ones that do don't have a good QB. So if its a cash grab he wants, good luck ever seeing another probowl or all pro. We are the very best team that can offer him the most.

    Players aren't obligated to be reasonable unless they're sitting on a lot of wealth.

    A good GM could shuffle money around to pay Graham $12M/season, and I guarantee you a team like the Patriots could.

    If someone is willing to give hin that then ill take the picks. He just lost a rulling saying hes not a WR. Why give him WR money?

    Gronk is paid like 9 million. I dont care about health issues, jimmy is not 3 million better then the 2nd (arguably 1st when on field) TE.

    But hey, lets pay more then 3 million market value and tell Cameron Jordon we dont quite have enough for him. No one "owes" anyone anything. But, for the betterment of his career I dont think trying to get the saints to pay that amount of money is good for him.

    I dont want to make it sound like I dobt want him around, because I do. But we will not be extorted into giving him WR money.
