Jimmy Graham and the Saints are close to finalizing a long-term deal prior to the July 15th 4:00pm EST deadline, per Adam Schefter. The deal would make Graham the highest-paid tight end in NFL history.

Of course. Because both sides have only had 3 months to hammer out a long-term contract. Why wouldn't they wait until the final minutes?

This news comes just after learning that Graham had decided to appeal his tight end franchise tag ruling.

Hold onto your hats, Saints fans, things are starting to get exciting. Tick, tick, tick...
