This might be the biggest news of free agency for the Houston Texans so let’s enjoy it as ESPN.com is reporting the Texans have re-signed tight end Garrett Graham.
The ESPN.com article by Tania Ganguli says:
“Prior to Graham’s agreement, the Texans were the only team to have not signed or re-signed any player since the new league year began on Tuesday.”
The contract is for three years.
I think this is a great move by the Texans.
Graham may not be the best TE in the league, but from what I watched at times last season there is some untapped potential with Graham, and I believe head coach Bill O’Brien is the man to get Graham to the next level.
Don’t be surprised if 2014 is a breakout year for Graham.
Last season Graham had 49 receptions for 545 yards and five TDs.
For his career, Graham has 78 receptions for 832 yards, as he averages 10.7 yards per receptions. His longest career reception came last season as it was for 42 yards.
Graham has eight career TDs.
I believe the Texans could really have something good with the combination of Graham and Ryan Griffin at TE, as they are both still young and have a lot of room for improvement.
Graham’s best game last season was against the Oakland Raiders (a 28-23 loss) where he finished with seven receptions for 136 yards and one TD. He averaged 19.2 yards per reception in that game.
The Texans released veteran TE Owen Daniels earlier this week.
Graham was originally drafted in 2010, a fourth round selection (118th overall), by the Texans from Wisconsin.
