its because he's not going to accept the TE offer
He is not a holdout. If he signs as a tight end and does not show up, he will be a holdout.
I do not have all the information about why is fighting to be paid as a wide receiver, but I think he is claiming that he has lined up as a wide receiver more than he has lined up as a tight end.
He claim is basically a claim that he has been working out-of-class and should get the pay of the higher class.
This type of claim, grievance actually, is not uncommon when there is a collective bargaining agreement.
I am sure that Vernon Davis hopes that if Graham wins, it will help him.
I have no idea, and do not care if Graham is right or wrong or if he wins or loses.
But, if you said Graham was a holdout, you were in error. Not a big deal, but facts are facts.
