Default Garrett Graham wants to remain with Texans: (*UPDATE/SIGNED 03/13/14*)

Quote:
HUMBLE — Fourth-year tight end Garrett Graham said Monday he’s still in the initial stage of exploring his options as an unrestricted free agent. If Graham has his way, though, he’ll remain with the team that drafted him.

Graham, 27, caught 49 passes for 545 yards and five touchdowns last season for the Texans. He filled in well for starter Owen Daniels, who was limited to five games due to injury, and could form a strong receiving pair with second-year tight end Ryan Griffin as the Texans move into their next era.

“I just want to play for a team where I’m going to be utilized and I can make some plays,” said Graham, during a media interview prior to wide receiver Andre Johnson’s charity golf tournament at the Golf Club of Houston.

Graham said the Texans haven’t let him know he’s a “priority” during free agency. However, he acknowledged it’s still early in the process and multiple issues will factor into his decision.

“It’s kind of been slow so far but that’s expected at this point,” Graham said.

He contacted my place of work asking about a Wisconsin or Texans logo on our product. This was last week so I think he's staying.

Tight end market could pick up today
March, 12, 2014
By Tania Ganguli | ESPN.com

I had operated under the assumption this offseason that the Texans' tight end situation was an either-or scenario.

Either Owen Daniels or Garrett Graham.

Graham
But having released Daniels on Tuesday, the Texans are also facing the prospect of losing Graham, who is far from a sure thing to be re-signed at this point.

Yesterday Graham characterized negotiations between his people and the Texans as "slow." Graham hit the market yesterday without a deal in place with the Texans. The tight end market as a whole has been slow and could pick up today, now that the first wave of signings is out of the way.

If it happens, losing Graham could mean a very young group of tight ends in Houston. Ryan Griffin showed promise last year, but he'd be a second-year player expected to take a huge jump. The most veteran of the group would be Zach Potter, who the Texans signed last month. Potter spent 2009 to 2012 with the Jaguars. And I could see them adding another drafted tight end in what's not an especially deep tight end draft class. (Depth is in the eye of the beholder, though. After all, Griffin's ability doesn't match a sixth rounder's.)
The Rest of the Story

If a team lets their player hit free agency it's less likely he'll return. We'll see what the market bears.

Should we have a thread for potential signees?

It's a three-year deal for Graham, who remains in Houston. #Texans


Tania Ganguli ‏@taniaganguli 1m

Graham becomes the first player the #Texans have signed or re-signed since the new league year opened.

I like Graham...I think more than a lot of people...

But I don't know if I'd have brought him back...Guess it depends on the price...I'm guessing it's a bargain...

Do yall think we still go after a TE in the draft now that we have resigned him or do you think this ends that talk of ASJ or Jace Amaro entirely?

#Texans second-year TE Ryan Griffin has far more upside than Garrett Graham, who is small, slow, and can't block.

Depends on how the draft falls. If there are no TEs taken in the 1st, then maybe they will take their pick. Amaro and ASJ could go late 1st, in which case I think we pass, since there are only a handful of TEs worth of a 1-4 round pick this year.

I think they will get an OT at 2-1 if there isn't a run on the position at the end of the 1st, and we don't pick up a decent on in free agency.

These are the points I posted in the past and found many on the other side of the argument. I believe that outside of a cheap acquisition, it will not prove to be a particularly productive one.

Graham costs less than Daniels and I suspect that the coaches expect Griffin to leap over him on the depth chart anyway. They'll go get another good prospect in the latter half of the draft and go from there. That's what I think.
