Former Wisconsin Badger TE, Garrett Graham, has signed on with the NFL team that drafted him: the Houston Texans. Graham signed a four-year deal, worth a reported $3.115 million. Graham will also bank $480,100 in signing bonuses.

On the Houston Texans roster, Garrett Graham will be joining another former Badger: Owen Daniels. Daniels was said to have been a major influence in getting Graham to Houston. The Texans have been very happy with the work ethic, athleticism, and skill set that Daniels has brought to the team, and were intrigued to take another look at the "Wisconsin TE pipeline."

In an indirect form of help, Daniels also made it a little easier for Graham to get more reps in the Texans' OTAs. Owen Daniels remains sidelined following reconstructive knee surgery, and therefore Graham has been seeing much more of the TE load.

Owen Daniels, entering his fifth NFL season, just reworked his contract himself. Daniels signed a one-year tender in June worth $3.2 million. Daniels has said he believes he will sit out all of training camp, but plans to be on the field for the Houston Texans opener against the Colts.
