The Saints are the proud new owners of the highest-paid tight end in NFL history.

Jimmy Graham's contract details have finally emerged. The tight end's new deal is worth $40 million over a four years, with $21 million of that guaranteed, according to Adam Schefter.

For those of you doing the math at home, that's $10 million per year, which best's Rob Gronkowski's contract and makes Graham the highest paid tight end in NFL history.

Frustrating because it's not that much more than the $9.5 million that was reportedly on the table this entire time so it's why the protracted negotiations for four and a half months? My guess is that that guaranteed money has been the sticking point this entire time.
