Scout.com has confirmed that a radio report stating free agent tight end Dan Graham signed with the Denver Broncos is false.
In fact, scout.com has confirmed Graham is in Denver today, Oakland, then Seattle for visits.
The Minnesota Vikings also have interest but haven't set up a visit yet.
On Thursday, the Vikings released veteran tight end Jermaine Wiggins, whose production dropped from 71 and 69 catches the previous two seasons to 46 in 2006.
The Vikings were also rumored to be considering a release or restructured contract for Jim Kleinsasser, the team's blocking tight end. Kleinsasser had only seven receptions last year, and the Vikings have been looking for a tight end that better fits Brad Childress's West Coast offense since he became their head coach last January.
Graham only had 21 receptions last year and has never had more than 38 in a season, but his production has been overshadowed by injuries and the emergence of Ben Watson. Watson caught a career-best 49 passes in 2006 while Graham missed four games due to injury.
The Patriots declined to place the franchise tag on Graham, which would have cost $4.31 million, and the more well-rounded tight end continues to draw interest from several NFL clubs.
