T.J. Graham caught one pass for a 67-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week
With three minutes left in the first quarter, Mike Vick executed a perfect play-action fake and dropped a dime on Graham, who had a step on Steelers CB William Gay. It was the only target Graham saw all day. The speedy ex-Bills bust is not worth an add in any format. Nov 9 - 4:26 PM

Free agent WR T.J. Graham worked out for the Jets.

Graham was waived by the Titans last week. He's looking to sign with a team as a deep reserve and situational deep threat. A 2012 third-round pick of the Bills, Graham has just a 54/683/3 line through three seasons.
Sep 26 - 8:08 PM

Titans waived WR T.J. Graham.

TE Chase Coffman was signed in a corresponding roster move. A 2012 third-round pick of the Bills, Graham was claimed off waivers at final cuts, but had yet to be active this season. Graham's draft pedigree and 4.34 wheels should earn him another look, but he's looking less and less likely to carve out a career as a situational deep threat.
Sep 23 - 5:10 PM

Titans claimed WR T.J. Graham off waivers from the Bills.

Graham, a third-round pick of the Bills in 2012, had been on the trade block after falling behind Robert Woods last season. He'll compete for snaps behind the Titans' top-three of Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter. Graham hasn't shown anything besides straight-line speed so far in his career.

Bills waived WR T.J. Graham.

The Bills had Graham on the trade block, but predictably found no takers. A third-round pick of the Chan Gailey regime in 2012, Graham posted a 31-322-1 line as a rookie before falling behind Robert Woods last season. Graham was done in Buffalo as soon as the Doug Marrone regime traded for Mike Williams and drafted Sammy Watkins.
Aug 30 - 2:52 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Bills have had WR T.J. Graham on the trade block "for several months."

It's hardly surprising, as it's been assumed Graham's roster spot was in danger since the end of last season. Graham has had a quiet camp, and caught only two passes through four preseason games. The Bills' new brain trust has no allegiance to former GM Buddy Nix's 2012 third-round pick.
Aug 28 - 1:50 PM

T.J. Graham dropping passes has been a "recurring theme" during training camp.

According to ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak, "time may be running out" for Graham. The third-year receiver is competing for No. 5 duties and doesn't contribute on special teams. Graham is a long shot to make the 53-man roster. Another team will likely give him a chance thanks to his blazing 4.34 wheels.
Jul 28 - 7:34 PM

WGR 550 Buffalo believes third-year Bills WR T.J. Graham will have to prove he can "chip in on special teams" to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.

That means Graham will have to learn a new skill, as he's been a non-factor on special teams through his first two years in the league. Graham has combined for one career kick/punt return. Graham's ceiling on offense is No. 5 receiver.
Jul 9 - 10:15 AM

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak puts T.J. Graham's roster chances at "45 percent."

Graham is battling for No. 5 receiver duties with Marcus Easley, Chris Hogan, and Kevin Elliott. Easley and Hogan are both kick coverage standouts and finished first and third in special teams tackles, respectively. Hogan also has a good pair of hands. Graham might need to flash as a return man to make the squad. Realistically, his odds of making the team appear longer than 45 percent.

Bills WR T.J. Graham underwent offseason hip surgery.

Graham isn't participating in OTAs, but could be ready for next month's minicamp. He's competing with Marcus Easley, Chris Hogan, and Ramses Barden for the No. 5 receiver job. A situational deep threat that lacks special teams value, Graham needs a strong preseason to make the Bills' final roster.

May 30 - 5:27 PM

WGR 550 says the "odds are stacked against" T.J. Graham making the Bills' final roster.

Graham was on thin ice before the Bills traded for Mike Williams and drafted Sammy Watkins. Now the 2012 third-rounder is going to have to come up with a huge camp and show an ability to play on special teams. Graham was drafted by the Chan Gailey regime, while Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin were handpicked by the Doug Marrone regime.
May 28 - 9:41 AM

WGR 550 Buffalo believes T.J. Graham is "on thin ice" with the Bills, as he enters his third season.

Graham was the 69th overall pick in the 2012 draft and has just 54 grabs for 683 yards and three touchdowns through 31 games. As a pure deep threat, he didn't have much of a chance with popgun-armed Ryan Fitzpatrick as a rookie before tumbling down the depth chart in 2013. Graham needs a strong summer.
Apr 9 - 1:38 PM

WGR 550 Buffalo believes T.J. Graham will be on the roster bubble heading into 2014 training camp.

This isn't about money as Graham has no roster bonus and a mere $580,000 salary in 2014. It's about production. Graham, a third-round pick in 2012, showed little progress while posting a 23/361/2 line this season. Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin are far better prospects.
Jan 8 - 11:55 AM

T.J. Graham caught three passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo's Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

He also committed a costly fourth-quarter drop. A second-year third-rounder, Graham finishes 2013 with 23 catches for 361 yards and two scores. At best, he'll be No. 4 on the depth chart next season, and possibly lower. Graham has little Dynasty-league appeal.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 10:02:00 PM

T.J. Graham caught two passes for 27 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

Graham's playing time saw a major boost with Stevie Johnson (personal) inactive and Marquise Goodwin (knee)/Robert Woods (ejection) leaving early. But he saw just five targets and once again failed to do anything unique. Graham is likely to enter the offseason buried on the Bills depth chart.
