New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham may look to receive the wide receiver franchise tag as opposed to the tight end franchise tag if he is not able to sign a new contract before the start of free agency. The NFL Players Association likely would argue that Graham lines up in the slot or as an outside receiver more often than he does as a tight end and that many of the team's running plays go away from Graham to protect him from any dangerous blocks. The wide receiver tag is expected to be around $11.6 million while the tight end tag is expected to be around $6.7 million.
