Graham was arguably the best tight end in football last year.
New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham received the Franchise Tag.

There was no way that the Saints would let Graham leave the organization. In the 2013 regular season, Graham totaled 86 receptions, 1215 yards, and 16 touchdowns.
2014 will mark Graham’s fifth season in the NFL.
