New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he wants the team to have a quick resolution to TE Jimmy Graham's contract situation so that the two have valuable time together on the field before the season starts. "Jimmy's my guy," Brees said in a sit-down interview late last month. "I want what's best for him. I want what's best for the team. Certainly there's a way that everybody can be happy coming out of this deal. But it is part of the process, and I went through something similar to this two years ago, so I get it." The Saints have eight days to work out a long-term deal with Graham, and sources expect negotiations to extend up until the deadline on July 15.

Washington Redskins TE Logan Paulsen thinks New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham should be considered a tight end over a wide reciever. "It's difficult because you look at it and you say, 'Oh, he's lined up at receiver," added Paulsen. "But I guarantee you he goes to tight end meetings. He goes with the tight ends during practice. And they might have him do some different stuff during practice, but there's no doubt in my mind that they refer to him as a tight end."

The New Orleans Saints will now begin contract negotiations with the agent franchise free-agent TE Jimmy Graham, because the two sides were waiting on the ruling on Graham's grievance before starting contract talks. There appears to be a chance that Graham will not be interested in his franchise tender if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement before the July 15 deadline and could hold out during training camp and possibly the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should watch this situation, because there is a chance Graham holds out if he does not get a contract he likes. Graham is one of the top fantasy tight ends at this point, but his value could go down if he holds out during the regular season.

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham's grievance hearing has been decided, and he has been officially ruled a tight end.
Fantasy Tip: How this might affect how the Saints use Graham on the field moving forward has yet to be seen, but it at least gives more clarity to Graham's contract situation moving forward. It'll surely affect the bargaining stances of tight ends similar to Graham, too.
