According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos have signed free agent tight end Garrett Graham to a one-year deal.

Graham is entering his seventh year in the league and will be reuniting with Gary Kubiak. Graham was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Gary Kubiak and the Houston Texans. Garrett played for the Texans for six seasons before being released by the team earlier this offseason.

During Graham's six-year career at Houston, he totaled 100 receptions for 1,059 yards and 10 touchdowns. His best season came in 2013 when he started 11 games for the Texans and totaled 49 receptions for 545 yards and 5 touchdowns.

After Kubiak left Denver his number did dip some. The past two seasons Graham totaled 22 receptions for 227 yards and 2 touchdowns. So hopefully reuniting with Kubiak will help Graham return to his 2013 form.

Graham will now compete with second-year player Jeff Heuerman and veteran Virgil Green for playing time. I still expect the Broncos to address the tight end position sometime during the draft.
