07:30 AM ET 02.26 | Though few believe the Saints will let Jimmy Graham hit free agency, it doesn't mean things aren't getting complicated. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that no meaningful progress has been made, according to a source briefed of the talks. The sides are still millions apart annually. As mentioned in our franchise-tag primer, if no deal is struck, look for Graham to be tagged as a tight end -- projected for 2014 at $6.8 million -- despite his high percentage of snaps in the slot and out wide as a receiver. If that happens, we fully expect Graham to file a grievance in an effort to get wideout money, projected at $11.6 million. FoxSports.com's Mike Garafolo noted Tuesday that New Orleans is willing to pay Graham more than Rob Gronkowski's $9 million per year.
