It did not take the Saints too long to slap Jimmy Graham today after Dennis Pitta the Ravens tight end was signed to a five year deal worth 32 million. The team would probably have to double that signing to keep Graham and it looks the team will do the safe thing and slap the tag on Graham.
No great surprise, but the Saints will use their franchise tag on tight end Jimmy Graham before Monday’s deadline, per a league source.
