NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have confirmed a multiyear contract with star tight end Jimmy Graham.

Details have not been released in the deal that ends a protracted holdout. Graham skipped all of the Saints' voluntary and mandatory practices and workouts - and challenged the NFL's franchise tag process through arbitration.

The odds of Graham leaving the Saints were slim since the club in late February placed its franchise tag on the player.

The NFL Players Association filed a grievance, contending Graham was used as a wide receiver often enough to qualify for the more lucrative receiver tag, worth about $5 million a year more than the $7 million tag for a tight end.
