NFLPA Files Grievance for Saints TE Jimmy Graham

The NFL Players Association filed a grievance on behalf of Saints TE Jimmy Graham.
New Orleans -- (NFL.com) The NFL Players Association filed a grievance on behalf of Saints TE Jimmy Graham.

Tom Pelissero with USA Today posted on Twitter that no hearing date is set for the grievance.

The grievance appears to focus around the fight over the franchise tag surrounding the star tight end.

The Saints placed the franchise tag on Graham back in February, with the franchise number for tight ends being $7.035 million.

Graham has not signed his one-year tender offer, and the NFLPA is going to make the case that Graham should be counted as a wide receiver because so many of his snaps happen away from the line of scrimmage.

The wide receiver franchise tag number is $12.3 million.
