Falcons worked out TE Graham
Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston tweets that the Falcons worked out free agent tight end Daniel Graham yesterday as their most recent mini-camp opened. Graham was cut last week by the Tennessee Titans after one season with the Titans. Graham has made his career primarily as a blocking tight end.
Graham was originally a first round pick by the New England Patriots in 2002. He spent five seasons with the Patriots before joining the Denver Broncos in 2007. He spent four seasons as a starter with the Broncos before signing with the Titans last season. For his career, Graham has caught 224 passes for 2,490 yards and 25 touchdowns over the course of ten seasons with 117 starts and 142 total games played.
If the Falcons opted to sign Graham, he would likely become the front-runner for the third tight end position behind Tony Gonzalez and Michael Palmer with the team having a number of unproven and untested young players there.
