NFL.com's Ian Rappaport is reporting that arbitrator Stephen Burbank has ruled in favor of the New Orleans Saints: Jimmy Graham will be paid the franchise tender at the tight end position, not wide receiver.

Sigh. Honestly, what is going on with linebackers and injuries this offseason? This is a huge blow to the Bills' defense, which was much better than most people realized last season. We know Nigel Bradham is nowhere near as good as Alonso, and it's hard to imagine that third-round rookie Preston Brown will be -- although hey, Alonso was a somewhat unknown second-rounder last year at this time. You never know.

We're almost at July, which means people are going to start wondering when the 2014 KUBIAK fantasy football projections and Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 are going to show up for sale on Football Outsiders. I wanted to let everyone know about this year's delays. Both KUBIAK and the book will be delayed this year. We're hoping it's not for more than a week or two, but I'll be honest, there's a possibility the book won't be ready until early August. KUBIAK, at least, should be ready by July 16.

What would you do as a GM of a freakish talent that is the Randy Moss-Lawrence Taylor of left tackles, but has a wild streak? Michael Schottey of Bleacher Report and Matt Waldman give their takes.

Doug Farrar, Cian Fahey, and I had a bit of an e-mail round robin about Flowers about a month ago, before Kansas City cut him. Flowers had phenomenal charting stats in 2012 -- top ten in both Adjusted Success Rate and Adjusted Yards per Pass -- and then horrific charting stats in 2013. Looking closer with two film guys, though, it looked like less of a case of getting old and more a case of player and scheme really not matching. The Chiefs had always played Flowers on one side, period. Suddenly in 2013 they were moving him all over, sometimes into the slot.

Your team captain and the Walter Payton Man of The Year is entering the final year of his contract, but you have dirt on him. Do you use it to leverage a new deal in your favor ? One of several GM Scenario that Matt Waldman has football writers around the Internet wrestling with.

Top receiver corps, to be specific, and I consider tight ends and running backs who can catch as part of the corps.

Rivalry week has significant conference and Playoff ramifications. Should Alabama, Mississippi State, Oregon, or Florida State be worried about getting upset by their rivals?
