Report: Saints, Graham likely to complete deal before April 22 grievance deadline.

The Saints and tight end Jimmy Graham are expected to work out a long-term deal by April 22, which is the deadline for him to file a grievance over being classified as a tight end according ProFootballTalk.com.

This is related to the franchise tag the Saints handed Graham at the end of February.

There is a $5 million difference between the franchise tag money for tight ends and receivers.

Graham spent most of his time with the Saints in 2013 lined up out wide. That is why some believe he may file a grievance asking to be paid as a receiver.
