First off, we all know a dynamic TE can be a matchup nightmare. OD is due 4.5 million base salary next year. And for a TE that is over 30 who is really more of a pass catching TE, that is alot of mula that can be spread around when you are paying a rookie TE a million in base salary per year for the first four years.

Graham had a pair of concussions last year. Unfortunately I am just not that confident that he will not get more in the future. Other than that we have unknowns.

Texans have an opportunity to add a guy like Zach Ertz, who has sneaky quickness and can create missmatches with his size. He is also a willing blocker who is not afraid to stick his pads in there and open up lanes for Stepfan Taylor.
