2014 Houston Texans Free Agent Tracker: Garrett Graham Re-Signs With Houston Texans

After more than two days of silence, the Houston Texans have reached a deal with their first free agent. It just so happens to be with Garrett Graham, the young Texans' tight end whose rookie contract just expired.

Staying home.
Staying home.

Less than a minute after I post this story, I see these tweets from Mark Berman:

Of course. OF COURSE. I'm an idiot.

Back to Garrett Graham...this qualifies as good news for the good guys. Graham has been solid in the TE2 role behind Owen Daniels, showing marked improvement each season of his professional career since being drafted back in 2010. Last season, Graham finished with 49 receptions for 545 yards and 5 TDs.

With Owen Daniels' release two days ago and Bill O'Brien's penchant in New England for incorporating two tight ends into his offense, keeping Graham in Houston took on added importance. Although Ryan Griffin flashed real potential in limited action during his rookie campaign (especially towards the end of the season), we can rest a bit easier knowing that Graham's continued presence on the roster gives the Texans more flexibility and experience at such an important position in the offensive scheme.

While we don't know the terms of the contract [UPDATE BELOW] yet and thus have to reserve judgment to some extent, celebrate Garrett Graham's continued employment with the Houston Texans in the Comments below.
