Julius Thomas keeps eye on Jimmy Graham situation

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) It's the $5 million question that's rumbling through NFL front offices and locker rooms alike: Is All-Pro Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints a tight end or a really big wide receiver?

It matters to men like Pro Bowl tight end Julius Thomas of the Denver Broncos, who's up for a big pay raise and could be facing a franchise tag himself after the upcoming season.

The Saints gave Graham the franchise tag for about $7 million as a tight end, the position he's been listed at for his entire four-year career - and which he himself lists on his Twitter account.

Graham contends that because he more often is split out away from the tackle, he is really a wide receiver.

Thomas is understandably interested in the outcome.
