Saints News, 6/26/14: No Decision Yet On Jimmy Graham Grievance

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

NFL system arbitrator Stephen Burbank took less than a week to issue his rulings in his first two cases involving the league. Not with the Jimmy Graham case, however. None of the parties involved in Graham’s grievance case over whether he should be classified a tight end or a wide receiver had any news Wednesday, a week after Graham’s hearing was conducted in a Metairie hotel, although NFLPA communications director Carl Francis said it shouldn’t be too much longer. I assume that Graham posing for SNF pictures today while in a Saints uniform is at least a good sign.
