Analysis: It was a much better performance for Graham considering he had 12 catches for 101 yards over his previous four games, but he remains a bit of a disappointment for owners who drafted him in the first round. Graham has 73 catches for 782 yards and nine TDs.
|Dec. 8 2:53 PM PT3:53 PM MT4:53 PM CT5:53 PM ET22:53 GMT6:53 AM 北京时间3:53 PM MST5:53 PM EST4:53 PM CT2:53 UAE (+1)17:53 ET20:53 - Graham was limited to three receptions on 25 yards in Sunday's loss to Carolina despite 11 targets.

The Saints are coming off of a bye, which offered Graham an extra week's rest, and the tight end says the training staff has managed his injury well.
Analysis: Graham has returned to practice on a limited basis this week despite a shoulder injury that knocked him out of New Orleans' Week 5 victory over Tampa Bay.

Graham leads New Orleans with 34 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns.
|Oct. 5 11:08 AM PT12:08 PM MT1:08 PM CT2:08 PM ET18:08 GMT2:08 AM 北京时间11:08 AM MST1:08 PM EST1:08 PM CT22:08 UAE14:08 ET17:08 - Graham is active Sunday in Detroit.

|July 15 8:01 AM PT9:01 AM MT10:01 AM CT11:01 AM ET15:01 GMT11:01 PM 北京时间8:01 AM MST10:01 AM EST10:01 AM CT19:01 UAE11:01 ET14:01 - The New Orleans Saints on Tuesday confirmed a multiyear contract with Graham, ending a protracted holdout for the star tight end. Graham skipped all of the Saints' voluntary and mandatory practices and workouts - and challenged the NFL's franchise tag process through arbitration.
Analysis: 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.
|July 2 9:18 AM PT10:18 AM MT11:18 AM CT12:18 PM ET16:18 GMT12:18 AM 北京时间9:18 AM MST11:18 AM EST11:18 AM CT20:18 UAE12:18 ET15:18 - An arbitrator has sided with the New Orleans Saints in ruling that Graham can only be considered a tight end for the purposes of his franchise tag designation.
Analysis: The ruling Wednesday by Stephen Burbank is a setback for Graham, agent Jimmy Sexton and the NFL Players Association, who'd filed a grievance arguing that Graham was used as a wide receiver often enough to qualify for the more lucrative receiver tag. NFL franchise tags, which allow teams to keep one prized free agent, was set this year $7 million for tight ends and $12.3 million for receivers.
|June 17 1:06 PM PT2:06 PM MT3:06 PM CT4:06 PM ET20:06 GMT4:06 AM 北京时间1:06 PM MST3:06 PM EST3:06 PM CT0:06 UAE (+1)16:06 ET19:06 - All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham and the New Orleans Saints met Tuesday for arbitration on his contract. Graham filed a grievance through the players' union. He contends he should be considered a wide receiver, not a tight end, when the team designated him with the 2014 franchise tag. The difference in salary would be more than $5 million.
Analysis: The Saints gave Graham the franchise tag for about $7 million as a tight end, the position he has been listed at for his entire four-year career. But he believes because he often is split out away from the tackle, he is a wide receiver. That franchise tag is worth about $12.3 million.
|May 7 9:31 AM PT10:31 AM MT11:31 AM CT12:31 PM ET16:31 GMT12:31 AM 北京时间9:31 AM MST11:31 AM EST11:31 AM CT20:31 UAE12:31 ET15:31 - The NFL Players Association confirms that the union has filed a grievance on behalf of 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.
Analysis: 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.
|Feb. 28 3:00 PM PT4:00 PM MT5:00 PM CT6:00 PM ET23:00 GMT7:00 AM 北京时间4:00 PM MST6:00 PM EST5:00 PM CT3:00 UAE (+1)18:00 ET22:00 - The NFL has formally designated New Orleans' Jimmy Graham as a tight end for the purposes of his franchise tag value, which is now set at $7.05 million next season unless Graham and the Saints subsequently agree on a long-term deal.
Analysis: The designation was released Monday after the deadline passed for NFL teams to use franchise or transition tags on players becoming free agents. Because Graham often split out from the offensive line as a receiver would, there have been questions concerning whether the NFL's collective bargaining agreement calls for Graham to have a receiver's tag, worth $12.1 million.
