Interest Level in Graham Appears High

After last year's NFL draft, scout.com speculated the handwriting was on the wall for veteran TE Daniel Graham after the team selected TE David Thomas in round three. With Graham's exit cleary marked, he should receive significant interest on Friday when free agency starts.

As scout.com and PatriotsInsider.com first reported last Saturday, three teams (Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, and Seattle Seahawks) would show significant interest in Graham. You can add a fourth team with scout.com and PatriotsInsider.com learning that the New Orleans Saints also will show interest in the former University of Colorado star.

New Orleans clearly has a need at tight end since their top two players at that position are journeymen Ernie Conwell and Mark Campbell.
