Jimmy Graham’s Twitter Bio Might Have Cost Him $5 Million


Twitter has been getting athletes caught up and costing them money since 2009. But, did you ever expect an NFL player’s Twitter bio to possibly cost him major $$?

That might be the case with New Orleans Saints player Jimmy Graham. The Saints put a franchise tag on Graham as a tight end. The salary for that position with the franchise tag, translates to about $7 million.  Graham filed a grievance with the league, arguing that he’s really a wide receiver and that’s how he should be franchised. The difference in salary is about $5 million at around $12.7 million.

The Saints are saying not so fast Jimmy, your Twitter bio and website all list you as a “tight end.”

YIKES! This is going to get ugly.
