RTC: Texans have competition for Graham
By Michael DiRocco
The Houston Texans want to keep tight end Garrett Graham and hope to have a deal finalized before free agency starts.
If they don't, however, they will have competition, reports NFL media insider Ian Rapoport.
Citing a source, Rapoport reported that the Green Bay Packers have their sights set on Graham, who caught 49 passes for 545 yards and five touchdowns in 2013 -- all career highs. Those numbers came despite the mess the Texans experienced at quarterback.
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley will become a free agent and will be more costly to re-sign than Graham.
