Free agent TE Daniel Graham has retired.
Graham, 34, is reportedly "content" and has no plans to come out of retirement. He appeared in six games for the Saints last season, but caught zero passes and was released in November. Graham spent his first five -- and most productive -- seasons with the Patriots. The former first-rounder finishes his career with 224 catches for 2,490 yards and 25 touchdowns across 11 seasons.

Date:

Saints released TE Daniel Graham and re-signed WR Greg Camarillo.

Graham missed last week's game with a knee injury. Now that Jimmy Graham is healthy, the 34-year-old is out of a roster spot. Camarillo will add depth at receiver.

Saints signed TE Daniel Graham.

The Saints made a flurry of roster moves Saturday, signing undrafted free agents DB Nick Hixson and G Paul Fenaroli while waiving LB Nate Bussey, DB A.J. Davis and G Andrew Tiller. Graham appeared in all 16 games for the Titans last season, but as a pure blocker, notching only two catches. He'll provide insurance for David Thomas, who is working his way back from a concussion-marred 2011.

The Falcons worked out free agent TE Daniel Graham on Tuesday.

Graham has ties to Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff from their time together in New England. The 32-year-old apparently left without a legitimate contract offer.
Wed, Jun 20, 2012 04:04:00 PM

Free agent TE Daniel Graham, released by the Titans on Tuesday, intends to keep playing as long as he's offered a contract by another team.

The 33-year-old's priority is joining a winning organization. It's possible that the Patriots will show interest in the blocking specialist, though a roster spot would be far from guaranteed for Graham.

Titans released TE Daniel Graham.

Graham appeared in all 16 games last season, but was used almost exclusively as a blocker, notching just two catches. He never had a chance of returning at his $2 million salary after the Titans used the No. 145 pick on impressive TE Taylor Thompson. Durable and versatile, Graham has a decent shot at cracking someone's 53 heading into his age-34 campaign.

The Nashville Tennessean believes TE Daniel Graham’s roster spot is in "real jeopardy" following the Titans' selection of TE Taylor Thompson with the No. 145 pick.

Graham is due $2 million after making two catches in 16 games last season, and would be a candidate for release even if Thompson hadn't entered the fold. It's unlikely the Titans will decide Graham's blocking is worth $2 million.
Sat, May 5, 2012 05:51:00 PM

Titans agreed to terms with TE Daniel Graham on a three-year, $8.5 million contract.

The Titans wanted a veteran presence behind Jared Cook and Craig Stevens, but Graham is purely a blocking tight end at this point his career. He managed just 18 catches in 16 games as Denver's starter last season. He won't be a threat to Cook's production.

Free agent TE Daniel Graham is visiting the Steelers and Titans this weekend.

It's just the kind of tight end the Titans are looking for. Graham could help mentor talented prospect Jared Cook while serving as a very capable run blocker. Meanwhile, the Steelers are looking for a replacement for Matt Spaeth, who signed with the Bears on Friday.

The Seahawks could be a possible landing spot for free agent TE Daniel Graham.

The Seahawks reportedly "battled hard" with the Broncos for Graham in 2007, and are looking to improve their running game this offseason. A good blocker, Graham could shine under new Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable, who was also on the staff at the University of Colorado when Graham was a player.

Free agent TE Daniel Graham believes he can play another three or four seasons following his release from the Broncos.

In other words, he has no plans to retire at age 32. Graham is no longer an asset as a receiver. His best bet may be to bulk up to Alge Crumpler proportions and embrace a blocking specialist role.

Broncos released TE Daniel Graham.

Perhaps former Josh McDaniels second-round pick Richard Quinn will finally get a chance. Graham, going on age 33, started all 16 games in Denver last season. Though he can still pass protect, Graham's run blocking has fallen off dramatically and he averaged just 8.22 yards per catch. We can't imagine Graham having an easy time landing a major role elsewhere. Releasing Graham saves $5.2 million, including a $1 million roster bonus.
Wed, Mar 2, 2011 04:18:00 PM

The Denver Post suggests that TE Daniel Graham may have to take a pay cut to stay with the Broncos in 2011.

Graham, 32, caught just 18 passes and averaged 8.2 yards per catch in 2010. He has one touchdown since the 2008 season. Pass catching isn't his primary role in the offense, but a $4.2 million salary in 2011 is a lot to play for a blocking tight end. Graham's future will be decided by a new coaching staff.

Broncos TE Daniel Graham (ribs) is expected to return to practice Tuesday afternoon.

Graham had not practiced since injuring his ribs in the first preseason game against the Bengals. While he's on track to rejoin the starting lineup at Jacksonville, he's not even remotely on the fantasy radar.

Coach Josh McDaniels indicated that Saturday's selection of blocking TE Richard Quinn doesn't mean the Broncos will cut Daniel Graham.

They're similar players, but McDaniels expects Graham to be a "leader" and Quinn is a project after catching only 12 passes in his college career. If Quinn comes along quickly, Graham will probably be a goner next offseason.
