Bills Rumors: T.J. Graham on Buffalo's trade block

By on 10:46 AM

When the Buffalo Bills drafted T.J. Graham back in the third-round of the 2012 draft, they thought they were getting a key contributor to the offense and a possible return specialist. Neither of those two hopes have come to fruition.

In 31 career games played Graham has totaled a measly 54 receptions, 683 yards and three...yes three touchdowns. A team that is desperate for a consistent spark on offense can become impatient with a guy with that type of production, especially when this isn't even the front office that drafted Graham. The trade rumors were recreated again from what sources tell Adam Caplan:

Buffalo has been hearing offers since the off-season but there seems to be no apparent suitors for Graham's talents right now. Some teams have banged up receiving corps and still don't want to give up anything for a guy who clocked in at a 4.1 40-time during his combine workouts. Part of the lack of interest could be due to teams knowing that the Bills may just outright cut Graham anyway.

Graham's future with the Bills could have been hinging on last nights pre-season game against the Detroit Lions where the Bills failed to register even a field goal and finished the night with a total of 12 first downs with five of those coming via a penalty. Graham caught one pass for 16 yards on four targets but last night could be an unfair judging of Graham's efforts because newly acquired Jordan Palmer took plenty of reps and I'm sure he was working with a limited play selection.

This will surely be Graham's last chance if he makes the final 53-man roster for the Bills. Sammy Watkins may have possibly re-aggravated that rib-injury and his status is still up in the air for week 1. That alone could save Graham's job...for at least one week.
