Saints | Drew Brees calls Jimmy Graham a hybrid

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 09:58:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees called TE Jimmy Graham a "hybrid" when asked if he saw Graham as a tight end or a receiver. Graham could file a grievance with the league after he was franchise tagged by the team as a tight end rather than a wide receiver. "He plays a different position than anybody in the league," Brees said. "So he'll be cutting edge with whatever he gets (paid). And everybody will try to compare themselves to him five years from now."

Wed, 29 Jan 2014 09:56:09 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he believes impending free-agent TE Jimmy Graham should be considered a tight end if the team places the franchise tag on him. Graham may be asked to be categorized as a wide receiver because he lined up as a tight end only 33 percent of the time this season.
