Bills have T.J. Graham on trade block

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills have kept wide receiver T.J. Graham on the trade block for the past several months, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

It's not a surprise. The Bills bolstered their receiver group this offseason by drafting Sammy Watkins and trading for Mike Williams. Even with the departure of Stevie Johnson, there likely wasn't room for Graham.

Graham, a third-round pick in 2012, started 11 games his rookie season, catching 31 passes. He started six games last season and finished with 23 catches and two touchdowns.

After sitting out organized team activities following offseason groin surgery, Graham saw limited action with the first-team offense in training camp. Though he has proven to be a deep threat early in his NFL career, Graham has inconsistent hands and has struggled with drops this summer.

If the Bills are able to deal Graham, it would likely be for a late-round, conditional choice.

Teams might also be waiting for Graham to hit the waiver wire. Unless the Bills keep seven receivers, Graham could be waived by this weekend.

Behind top receivers Watkins, Williams, and Robert Woods, the Bills have Marquise Goodwin, Chris Hogan, and Marcus Easley to round out their depth chart. Easley and Hogan finished first and third, respectively, in special teams tackles last season.
