Saints News, 5/12/14: Graham Grievance Hearing Against Saints Set For June 17-18

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

From ESPN's Mike Triplett: "The grievance hearing over Graham's franchise-tag designation has been scheduled for June 17-18, according to a league source. It's unclear whether a third-party arbitrator has been selected. At stake is how much the Saints will be required to pay Graham under the franchise tag. The NFL's management council declared Graham a tight end when he was franchised in early March, requiring the Saints to offer him a one-year salary of $7.035 million."
