It’s a good thing for the Saints that 49ers All-Pro Vernon Davis isn’t ruling on the grievance tight end Jimmy Graham filed against New Orleans. That’s because Davis believes Graham should be considered a wide receiver for the purposes of payment and is owed millions more than the Saints want to pay him under a franchise tag if it goes into effect.
