Now earn that long term deal by learning how to block. Everything else is golden!

Re: Graham designated TE by arbitrator

According to the article on nola.com, Graham and the NFLPA can appeal to a 3 person panel. I thought this was done with the arbitrator's decision. When is it final?

Time for the Saints to take the next step. Offer him a backloaded 5-year-deal for about 45 or 50 million. The dude has far outproduced his rookie deal and never complained, he does need to be rewarded.

Re: Graham designated TE by arbitrator

Don't think an appeal would overturn this ruling, common sense won out, I just see him becoming the highest paid tight end before the deadline.
