Saints | Jimmy Graham's hearings begin

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham's franchise-tag grievance begins Tuesday, June 17. Arbitrator Stephen Burbank will hear arguments from the NFL Players Association and the NFL Management Council to determine if Graham should be labeled as a tight end or wide receiver for franchise-tag purposes. It's unknown how long the hearings will take, but they could last up to a week.

Fantasy Tip: Graham's ruling will have a direct effect on the team's negotiations with him on a long-term deal, which they must come to an agreement on before July 15 or Graham will have to play on a one-year deal.
