At least Jimmy Graham had some humor about it.

With the deadline approaching on Monday, the Saints were previously reported to be giving the tight end the franchise tag. Graham confirmed this on his personal twitter account.

"Confirming it's officially Franchisefriday... TAG ... I guess I'm it..," he wrote.

Graham has publicly stated he didn't want the franchise tag. Then again, nobody in the NFL wants it. Long-term security is more important than one year with a high salary to these guys.

That's not to say the Saints can't get a deal done with Graham. They'll have until July 15 to work something out. Otherwise, Graham will play the season with the designation — whether it's at tight end or wide receiver.
