Default Graham Ruled TE not WR

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/r...million-070214

I don't think they got this one right Graham lines up 67% of time in a WR position, costing him 5.3 million. Oh well I was hoping that they would force the Taints to pay more to put them where they belong in the cellar.

Default Re: Graham Ruled TE not WR

What's interesting to me is they figured the point between WR and TE to be 4 yards from the tackle. That will definitely have an impact on how other teams use hybrid players like Graham.

Graham is just going to hold out, this will probably be his last season in NOLA between Breesus not saying his teammate deserved more money while he himself is sucking cap space, who by the way helps inflate his passing yards and TDs, to the front office screwing him out of money. Top to bottom just a horrible low class organization.

They franchised tagged him. Also, Brees has publicly backed Graham on this issue.

Are you ever able to discuss something while simultaneously keeping your irrational biases out of it?

It's the right decision. Find another WR that lines up 1/3 o the plays in a 3 point stance attached to the OL. If he cared about being a WR, than he should have made a fuss about being classified a TE in opening line ups the last couple years. The guy had no problem being voted all pro at TE.

completely agree how can you be a wide reciever if you stay in and block with the OL 1/3 of your plays

They franchised him doesn't mean after this season he is gone, Brees threw Graham under the bus because as long as his bank account is rolling he doesn't care unless it comes to defending the undefendable in Bountygate.

Graham had no problem being an All Pro TE and even calling himself a TE on Twitter. Just wanted more $$$. I definitely agree with the decision.

That didn't help his case at all. When it was pointed out to him he quickly changed it.

i understand why the ruling was made because the players locked themselves into that position with the franchise tag rules but the modern receiving tight ends are essentially no different than a slot wr/outside wr. graham deserves to be paid like a top wr for what he brings to the table. as much as id like to see him get more money its something the market is eventually going to have to set rather than reclassifying his position.

If you get used regularly as a TE you are a TE. A true WR never get's used as a TE.

Yep. I don't blame him for trying to get more money but he is most definitely a TE.

I disagree. He would not be an elite pure WR. He is an elite TE because of the mismatch he creates there with his combo of speed and size. If he lined up wide without WRs to help get him in mismatches, he wouldn't be fast enough to be as success as a WR only. It's like saying someone wants to get DE pay, because they line up there 1/3 of the time on rundowns, even though they get their stats by being the nose guard and being an elite rusher from that position on passing downs.

i meant from impact as pass catchers, not that its plug and play for the different positions. it goes both ways, he helps open up things for the wr's too.
