TE | Daniel Graham | New England Patriots | Free Agency News
Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports New England Patriots TE Daniel Graham, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, would like to remain with the team, but also would like to be featured more as a receiver and not just as a blocking tight end, according to TE Benjamin Watson. "I think for Dan, like a lot of guys on this team, the No. 1 thing is winning games," Watson said. "No matter what it takes, whether it's catching 10 balls or no balls. That being said, he is a tight end and you cut the college tape on Dan - and I remember doing that at Georgia - you see him running across my screen every down because he's catching balls all over the place. So that's a part of him that he wants to develop. But he's such a great blocker. He's one of the best blockers on the team, so he's been called on to do that a lot also."
