Despite Gonzalez's Claims, Saints TE Jimmy Graham is Being Paid Like an Elite Wide Receiver

In trying to create views during the off-season, new CBS analyst Tony Gonzalez has been using hyperbole to support the cause of Jimmy Graham in the matter of compensation for NFL tight ends.

Should the Falcons make a move at tight end?

Levine Toilolo remains unproven as a quality receiving threat, and the retirement of Tony Gonzalez certainly leaves a void. Should the Falcons make a move to shore up their options at the tight end position? Reader Time2RiseUp posed a question in Monday's mailbag questions open thread about whether or not the Falcons will or should use their remaining cap money to acquire a free agent tight end who can bear some of the receiving burden and fill, at least partially, the void left by the departure of Tony Gonzalez. Dave ran out of room in his mailbag post to address this question, but it's...
