Lock him up. Release OD. Grab another TE in the 5th round.

Default Re: Report: Texans attempting to re-sign G. Graham

Not sure why the new regime would be that interested in GG, who's a smallish TE of average ability when OB seems to be more interested in the larger, more traditional in-line TEs, unless it's just a dearth of vets at this position who are available.

Graham could fill a role similar to the one Hernandez was in for the Patriots. The Patriots typically like to have two big TEs who can block and run, and one smaller move TE who is a hybrid player.

That's what the article implies; it's a seller's mkt for TEs.

All our TE's who walk end up not being used at all by the team who signed them. Well, at least 2 that I can think of.

I dunno Garrett Graham loves to play A LOT of golf....half the year up in Green Bay or New England doesn't allow that.

I don't understand this move. ProFootballFocus gave Graham an overall grade of -9.2. If you count all 126 TEs that had seen action last year, he ranked 120. Among all TEs that had played more than 750 snaps, Garrett was the worst TE in the NFL. Some dropped passes, poor route running, poor pass blocking, poor run blocking, etc. Garrett Graham was an especially abysmal pass blocker.

Which means Silck Rick is all in on re-signing him.

Majority of those negative ratings are run blocking, followed by pass blocking.

Graham will most like be slotted as a "move" TE in OB's two TE scheme, so his blocking assignments will be significantly different than those of an "in line"/Y TE. Think more H-back responsibilities.

We'll use bigger, stronger, better blocking guys up on the line -- the Y.

There's a new sheriff in town.

I don't get people that think he and OD are fungible.

Me either, GG cant carry OD's jock.

I kind of hope they let both of them go and draft AC Leonard with the 5th sup pick and pick up a vet min guy in FA.

Griffin/Leonard/Vet blocking guy would be a major TE upgrade. IMHO

It would also save a lot of cap space. Freeing up $$$$ to spend on a S/nickel CB.

well I trust what O'Brien is doing with the TE, he is the one that got Gronk and Hernandez.....

I would, however question his judgement in character...

I loved Graham coming out of Wisconsin but I've just about given up on him at this point. I'd rather let him walk. I think Griffin is a better player.

OD/Griffin/rookie looks good to me.

Leonard would be an awesome replacement. He could play the "move" TE. Griffin could play the Y. And OD could bounce between the two depending on situation.
