      After Graham ruling, Seferian-Jenkins jokes he's 'WR' Greg Auman, Times Staff Writer? ? July 3, 2014 12:06pm austin_zpsb6940e89.jpgAustin Seferian-Jenkins stops on the red carpet with his family and friends.After Wednesday's news that Saints star Jimmy Graham would get the franchise designation as a tight end and not a receiver, with his own identification on his Twitter bio factoring in an arbitrator's ruling, other NFL tight ends are careful how they're listing themselves online. Somewhere between savvy and silly, Browns tight end Jordan Cameron decided to call himself a "Pro Bowl pass catcher" -- nothing inaccurate there, of course -- and we pointed out that Bucs rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins and veterans Luke Stocker and Brandon Myers were still proudly calling themselves tight ends on their Twitter bios.Seferian-Jenkins, reading that, changed his bio to identify himself as "WR for the Tampa Bay Bucs!" and responded to our tweet with a playful "updated lol."By the time Seferian-Jenkins is in a position to be franchise-tagged -- that's at least four years away -- the league could very well change how that system is structured, just based on the initial reactions to the Graham ruling. When a player's compensation is directly linked to what position he plays, any interpretation of that -- based on where they line up, who they're lining up against or how they identify themselves on social media -- could have a seven-figure impact on how that player is paid.

      If guys like Graham and Gronkowski keep putting up the numbers they’re putting up then TEs will start to make more $ anwyays. Don’t think these young TEs have too much to worry about, the value of their position is increasing.

      He is going to be so solid for us.  You can’t put a price on a strong always open receiving TE.  Could be the best pick in the entire draft.

      I agree. I was rooting for us to grab this guy leading up to the draft.

      Yeah, I was really expecting a Guard in round 2 but I was really excited to grab him, definitely caught me off guard.

      What’s weird is the ASJ pick made me like the Evans pick so much more. I think it’s because I’m pumped that they are going to have four 6’4″-6’6″ guys as pass catchers.I mean, how the hell do you cover all of them??

      If used properly, all of these guys will succeed and we will be tough to stop.

      Seriously, you don't. You shut down two of them and hope the other has a bad day or the qb blows.Go find a dumptruck, stand by it, ...each one of them has the length of that truck in reach. That is also based on standing still, not already in movement. There are also only two corners that can match up with them physically within the division. If mccown doesn't fudge it up, we're in damn good shape.

      I think this guy will be a good red zone option.  He may not end up with a lot of yards for the season, but will have quite a few TD’s.
