Daniel Graham Makes A Lot Of Sense As Chiefs Next Free Agent Acquisition

Daniel Graham is beginning to work out for teams after being released by the New England Patriots a week ago and the Atlanta Falcons are first on the list. But expect the Kansas CIty Chiefs to likely dive in given the need for a veteran tight end on the roster.

Romeo Crennel already came out and said the team would likely add a veteran to the position for training camp. They have Tony Moeaki and Kevin Boss already in house as the starters, so the receivers are in place. However, Graham is known as a great run blocker and is savvy enough to come in and know what he’s doing.

Joel Thorman recently wrote of Graham’s personal ties to the Chiefs regime as well.

Pioli and the Patriots selected him in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft where he rose to level of offensive captain. He’s 33 years old so he’s not a guy you expect to come in and play 50+ snaps a game but there is a role for veteran tight ends like him.

Graham makes a lot of sense for a team that lost Martin Rucker to Injured Reserve. While they don’t need a offensive playmaker, Graham, 33, would be a nice veteran upgrade for a position filled with various injury risks.
