This move was expected after the -- tag rate with the dollar amount for tight end which is at seven million dollars compared to a wideout which is twelve Sports Illustrated senior NFL writer Peter King feels that Graham. Has a good shot of winning the grievance. Unfortunately and I think it's a huge mistake unfortunately I think -- arbitrators rule in favor of yeah him being a wide receiver because he lined up another. Well the FL draft is finally here kicks off tonight. With the saints currently owning the 27. Overall pick WWL draft guru Mike -- you feel that the black and gold or have some pretty good options on the defensive side of the football available to select.

You have to take the top talent available and is noted no doubt about it that it's clowning but there's a chance they could trade them. I'll absolutely -- -- -- me and don't they don't absolutely need clout. Well trading down in this year's draft with death we give you won't do it any -- give you more picks in this draft with it being so stocked full of talent. If the Texas could use it to stop too you know stock though. The -- full of more horses for their Iran motivated terrorism anything that someone would be trading up to get clowning. Absolutely and they're talking about the Atlanta Falcons are one of those teams that want to -- him retreated to the first or second pick to try and get him.

On his behalf against the saints who say he's a tight end Graham says it's now I'm a wide receiver. The difference would be about five million dollars a year in his pay.

We're going to see this slight chance for a sprinkle and mainly cloudy skies have a better rain chance arrives tomorrow especially the second half of tomorrow's 70% chance with highs of 81.

Now I'd start now muggy this morning 93% relative humidity at the airport and -- partly cloudy 71 we do have a breeze coming off the gulf on the southeast at eight miles an hour North Shore partly cloudy. And 65 degrees and gave when it's the early edition of WWL. Verses someone takes me 78 -- and I think the saints will go. With Latimer the wide receiver from Indiana that have not heard anyone predict that yet here anyway. But I'd rather see O'Dell Beckham junior yeah -- that would be great good. That's straight up to get into the top ten in what was there to give up to do that think they should. Talk more about it. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news it's made it's the eighth it's 2014 and a better than that it's the it's the day before Friday well happy Friday even -- be the first to wish -- -- happy draft day cash.

Well now be getting three day weekends every week at least into school districts and states that are shifting to board day weeks this fall officials they'll save money. Increased student and staff morale. -- -- IC with that is if the parents work five days. And the kids are only go to school four days what do you do with someone on Yahoo! that they audit that day off. By the district officials say afford a week it will mean that spending less than everything from -- -- transportation electricity and water would be a major change in today and they spanned a longer day during the yeah four days will be longer. To target a message. Yet and they tonight should be spending more timing class because of the way it works. -- they -- on the actual instructional time. Will be longer. And four days -- week. That would've been on the five. I would love it for the whole world got to do it it's got to be right out and complete shift because.

At end embodies that need yet were not happy not not want to give you artwork. And I and every Atlantic into a cut grass.

Laura but now the official creator debts has issued a skirt alert went out as the rain -- -- end -- here in the ads or are out. Yeah at -- and and probably kind of -- made day after hours at the 70% chance. And model for the hinting at some heavy downpours and not necessarily heavy storms meaning severe storms. But that kind of rain -- get you know you pick up a quick half an inch cut saying it very short amount of times a vaccine. For that on Friday -- -- get to Saturday even -- rain chance is not quite as high on Saturday. I'm still can keeps scattered downpours in the next for the first part of week OK so mostly who leads to our afternoon tomorrow morning and early Saturday into Saturday and even fit into the afternoon Saturday possible and that kind of -- but it's Saturday night actually two Breyer on Mother's Day had a 30% reaching its yesterday.

But wait a minute you wish in particular you're wearing a skirt today I have -- wearing black add into that -- This -- every gust of -- then students -- But that's like a little like a little summer just a little young lover for an area that it it can't happen. All right. Earlier today yeah. A summary summer dress speaking of dresses that you hear about it may go Wisconsin the prom dress wardrobe malfunction. Well it's not what you might -- A teenager says her dress caused her crashed her car in May bill was gone. He says are long -- got caught under her. -- life in her high heel but you're driving back. From the prom. And she crashed her car. Luckily he was not seriously injured. And she says she was just trying to get the -- free from the should do when he lost control that's why it's it's nights like two other cars no one was -- Make matters even worse the prom dress crash happened on her seventies and I got a ideology that driving yields in long dresses and stuff that -- you're walking alone arrive. Here's mine -- I -- -- to Wear heels on the morning -- just couldn't professional and also because. At the same height as our traffic -- -- the other -- like any -- Q where -- gonna do that I -- -- concede that the talk but what. A little. Secret is that I changed my flip -- immediately afterwards so I don't driving heels if you've got to kick the -- flop I knew it because. It's it's not -- -- the Iraq study. Any guy who says they're comfortable I mean you know -- they're not they're not comfortable tendency to flip flops. No way no I don't know even if you -- every day you're. You recommend everything else I saw something we the other day earlier this week I woman had to be seven or eight months pregnant.

If it's going to even out yet. Thank you Laura -- at but now live and direct Eyewitness News forecast tonight -- Jimmy Graham the NFL draft in sports is Steve -- right after that. Dennis thank you for calling WWL what's on your mind. Obviously. If they have all the records. Yeah he said NFL record after record at the tight end there. Political machinery out. He's pretty good as a wide receiver -- year right. And I guess a good question would be if he word then leave the league -- forced to designate him as a receiver does that mean they take away all of his height and the records. -- but. Yet but I guess he wouldn't really care because he'd be five million dollars richer. I think I'd give up all those records -- five million more dollars. -- -- review rather five million dollars or. All the records show me -- mud. Okay that's. There burger. Thank you for hours bringing a little Jerry Maguire -- it's -- -- draft day 2014. -- they've gone with the latest on Jimmy Graham yet about drafted more in sports good morning good morning everybody the NFL players association confirms that the union has filed a grievance on behalf of Jimmy Graham. Concerning the saints tight ends franchise tag designation. At issue is whether Gramm's tax should be applied as a tight end or wide receiver which is a difference of five million dollars Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King says unfortunately. He feels Graham will end up winning the case. Unfortunate because I think it's mr. characters justice I think it's ridiculous Jimmy Graham is drier periods of -- -- goes for the global -- a tight ends. People lit up the depth charges -- against. Well it's draft day and the saints own the 27 selection in the first round are NFL draft expert Mike did tell DA wouldn't be surprised if the black -- -- made a small move up tonight. To improve their options but says there are couple of specific needs he thinks the team should be looking for. 18 these speed receivers one before me. Would be a cover cornerback can just remember Rob Ryan likes eighth hole or troubled quarterback soul I think he would be a guy that five foot eleven and a half Mars polar. Over to the -- now for some playoff action as we saw the Indiana Pacers where their second round playoff series with Washington at a game apiece by beating the wizards 86 to 82 Roy Hibbert will go from a -- series with 28 points and nine rebounds. The NBA's most valuable player Kevin the re importing 32 points in leading Oklahoma City to a 112 to 11 victory over the LA clippers. That series is also an -- tied at a game apiece Russell Westbrook had his third triple double in the last five playoff games the 31 points ten rebounds and tennis this. An LA clippers co owner -- sterling has confirmed that she intends to keep ownership of the team and her family despite the NBA's move to oust her estranged husband. Donald Sterling -- -- for life by commissioner. Adam silver last week Shelley sterling has been co owner of the clippers with her husband since 1981. And is one of two alternate governors. Today from four to six catch this -- brat draft preview -- Jim Henderson and -- guys are as they go one on one with Sean Payton and the coaching staff that is Bobby gave bear and the boys live from Oceanic -- till midnight. I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning exporters some. Very cool about hearing him and -- together on the radio again for the draft made just makes me get that much more excited. For the season and when I hear those two guys together. You know that is football right we're definitely closer to this season actually beginning when you hear that -- so now you Marty told us who you think will go number one overall in the draft do you think that the Texans or some -- trades up. To get the Texans first -- will go for. Michael Downey. To deviant -- yes it actually got revealed that it's actually due Debian for these though these. Bonds that we've been calling his name improperly apparently is -- divvying -- we know it's funny how that happens because. Everyone refers to the pop star Rihanna as Rihanna. She says her name -- -- But for whatever reason nobody. In the media calls -- Rihanna. Its all Rihanna so I think -- -- is going to be to deviant for the rest of his whether you like you don't know yet whether he likes -- that system yet changing what but it could. So today Evian clown he goes number one overall. At 27 who -- the -- Our last mock draft I did I usually. Typically had the -- getting wide receiver. But this corner -- fell to me -- pick 27 from Virginia Tech Kyle Fuller. Really like you sizing cover skills and couldn't pass them up so I have the -- selecting Kyle Fuller. Corner -- Virginia Tech. Number twenty them yet this is the latest of the twenty plus Monica you've gone the final until -- -- -- negative anymore between now and tonight no more mocking. Well speaking of mocking you know that Jordan and master controls and mocking you -- only doing twenty month after -- how many have you done. Close to 100.

John WWL I am -- them and act now -- to forecast when the rain arrives after that. The last person thank you hate that it that it wouldn't it be awesome if the saints found a way to get O'Dell Beckham junior and Jarvis Landry could you imagine -- those two man in the show Drew Brees the quarterback that would be. Awesome well yeah it would be -- -- I can get either one of those guys at this stage point seven. Someone else does this thing should trade up to get O'Dell Beckham and trade Jimmy Graham. To get -- and after the draft to do that. I will find out what the saints do in well this draft begins in twelve hours. It -- at 27 probably around 9:30 PM -- they -- -- them while all the picks leading up to it we'll let you know the thing enter. Moving around making deals or not.
