The free agent market at tight end took a hit when Dennis Pitta re-signed with Baltimore and the Saints franchised Jimmy Graham, which pushes Texans tight end Garrett Graham closer to the top of the list.

Assuming, of course, that Houston doesn’t get him to agree to a deal that keeps him from talking to any other teams. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Texans are working to re-sign Graham before free agency opens next week.

Graham set career highs with 49 catches, 545 yards and five touchdowns last season in a role that expanded after Owen Daniels went down with an injury. While the Texans have changed coaches and some offensive philosophies, the new regime appears to want to see more of what Graham can do.

The Packers might be interested in finding that out for themselves. According to Rapoport, they’ve liked Graham since he came out of college and the possible departure of Jermichael Finley would leave them with an opening at tight end that Graham could fill.

Given the questions about the health of Finley and Dustin Keller along with those players who won’t be hitting the market, Green Bay could have company should Graham become a free agent.

    Awesome, he proved to be a great fill in for Owen Daniels, unfortunately I think Daniels time is up…too injury prone and Graham has showed he can be a solid number one. Now lets see who is throwing him the ball! Screw Matt Cassell I say we strive for McCown!

    Graham could fill in for us in Green Bay, and he could play tight end, too. We are hungry for a good tight end. Just my kind of player.

    Packers picking up a free agent is like if Al Davis drafted a player with a super slow 40 time.

    Green Bay will be active in FA this year. And by active I mean that agents will use them to jack up the price for someone else. See Steven Jackson last year.
