The Houston Texans have re-signed free agent tight end Garrett Graham to a three year deal to keep one of their own in Houston. Graham was set to test the free agency market, but the Head Coach Bill O’Brien saw him as a keeper for the 2014 roster.
Graham came into the spotlight in 2013 when starting tight end Owen Daniels want down for the season with a leg injury. Graham responded with his best season as a pro with 49 receptions for 545 yards and five touchdowns. He started 11 of the 13 games he appeared in and missed the final three with a hamstring injury.
With the signing of Graham give the Texans four tight ends under contract with Ryan Griffin, Zach Potter and Phillip Supernaw.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, New York Jets, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers all expressed interest in Graham this offseason.
Graham was drafted by the Texans in the 4th round of the 2010 NFL draft out of Wisconsin.
