The New Orleans Saints and Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham have agreed to a four-year, $40 million deal that includes $21 million guaranteed, a source familiar with the deal told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. (ESPN)
FFToday's Take:The two sides had until 4pm Eastern to reach a deal. Graham had been seeking to be paid as a wide receiver but his request was rejected by an arbitrator. This means there won't be any tension or holdout possibility during camp. Graham is the top tight end in fantasy football scoring 36 touchdowns the last three years.
