    They just announced on ESPN Radio that they have reached an agreement, pending a physical.

    Wow, that really sucks, I'm going to miss him. I can't complain though, we made a solid offer. It's tough to compete with home.

    Sad we couldn't sign DG. I hope things work out for him in Denver. He played hard all the time and was always a team guy.

    Graham is the enemy now. I wish him nothing but bad luck in his football career from here on out.

    Well one thing is for sure. If Shanny is running the same offense as he did with HorseMouth, Graham should catch a lot of balls.

    Funny though, I thought rookie Tony Scheffler looked pretty good end of last year. Surprised they spent big $$ on Graham. Unless they plan on going to lots of 2TE sets.

    (Which I suppose they did with a healthy Alexander & Scheffler.)

    Good luck my ass, he's a former Patriot now. I wish him the worst - other than a major injury of course.

    A good blocker lousy reciever .He wasn`t our #1tight end
    Sign Brady a better blocker and actually caught more passes.
    Brady blocked for Martn and Taylor two good ones

    I'm surprised it went down this quick and that the Pats didn't ask him to give them the chance to match the offer, or maybe they already said no thanks.

    It just had to be Denver. Come on ex Patriots, no going to Indy, Denver, or Pittsburgh, those are the rules from this day forward.

    Graham has a good reputation as a blocking TE, but that term is inadequate. Most associate "blocking TE" primarily in the running game. Graham was good at that, but where he excelled was in pass blocking. Often he would lock onto a DE one-on-one and neutralize his opponent. He's done it well against some of the best, too...Freeney, Peppers. In a division where he'll be facing Shawne Merriman, Shaun Phillips, Derek Johnson and Jared Allen twice a year, this was a great pickup for the Broncos. Jay Cutler can breathe easier today.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Yikes. He's really going to help the Broncos. Sad to see him go. Sad to realize he's going to be a problem for us in the future, not an asset. But I think he's going to thrive in Denver.
