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.

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.

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.
