Report: Bills have been willing to trade T.J. Graham for “several months”

TJ Graham AP

The Bills are reportedly willing to listen to clubs interested in making a deal for a receiver who’s started the majority of Buffalo’s games over the last two seasons.

The club has had third-year wideout T.J. Graham available in trade for “several months,” ESPN’s Adam Caplan reported Thursday.

The 25-year-old Graham has caught 54 passes for 683 yards and three TDs since joining Buffalo in 2012. He has appeared in 31 games, making 17 starts. However, Graham is currently listed as one of Buffalo’s third-string wide receivers.

Graham (5-11, 188) has excellent timed speed; he was clocked at 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. A third-round pick of the Bills in 2012, Graham has two years left on his contract and would be subject to waivers if Buffalo released him.

NFL clubs must reduce their rosters to 53 players by Saturday afternoon, and Graham surely isn’t the only player who has been made available. It will be interesting to see if any clubs can get deals done in the next two days, whether they are player-for-player swaps or trades involving a low-round conditional draft pick.

    Jets should trade Stephan Hill and a bag of Snow Salt for this guy

    Nobody wants Graham. Give it til Saturday and if somebody really wants him they can have him after he is cut.

    The Seahawks considered it, but they have their hands full reclaiming abused Vikings players.

    Graham, a D-Lineman, and a draft pick for a real QB.

    Send him to N.E. for Mallet! Same division, but they aren’t helping anyone playing for their current teams.

    TJ Grahm for me will always be the player we took over Russel Wilson

    He sucks. He’s the 7th best WR they have right now. It’s no mystery their attempt to use him as trade bait hasn’t worked.

    Send to NE for Mallet? Is that serious?

    TJ Graham is bad. The Bills are going to cut him. Obviously they’d be open to getting something in return for him.

    They need a qb. Manuel is awful beyond compare

    per a previous article on PFT, rumblings are that they are going to get rid of Mallet. If you are a Bills fan do you really believe EJ is the answer? Our QB situation has obv been fixed with the signing of the worse Palmer brother. Why not attempt to trade 2 players who are about to be let go for eachother.

    Roscoe Parrish V2.0 Graham is. Trade him, they will not.

    Not that Graham sucks but he’s clearly been phased out. They’ve drafted 3 receivers in the last 2 years and traded for one. And it’s not like he was ever a big part of the offense.

    No one is going to trade for a guy like that.

  13. 4thqtrsaint says: Aug 28, 2014 4:11 PM

    Even if he’s bad, who else do they have? 1 WR.

    Graham does suck. Every training camp practice he had at least one or two big drops and the catches he did make were all w/ his body. Granted he’s prolly better than Easley, but he doesn’t bring nearly what Easley does on ST. Why wud a team trade for him when they can wait it out and pick him up when he gets cut.

    He was drafted under the Chan Gailey – Buddy Nix regime. They hyped him as being a no.1 receiver. We’re still waiting.

  16. pftfan says: Aug 28, 2014 5:08 PM

    3 TD’s in 31 games!

    Wow, where do I sign up??

  17. coachbeck says: Aug 28, 2014 5:26 PM

    He would be a #2 in Cleveland now

  18. qdog112 says: Aug 28, 2014 5:55 PM

    Kid was a track guy with straight away speed and little else. Russell Wilson got him drafted.

    He’s a shorter version of Stephen Hill. Nice kid, but nothing tells me he will ever develop into a WR.

  19. firedup1 says: Aug 28, 2014 6:03 PM

    He would start at QB for Cleveland.

  20. 1zzo says: Aug 28, 2014 9:42 PM

    Calling him Roscoe Parrish 2.0 is doing a huge disservice to Roscoe – at least Parrish was a dynamite return man for a while.
    It’s interesting to see what happens to Bills players who are cut or traded. Some are so bad that they couldn’t even make it on the Bills and end up out of football shortly thereafter. Others are talented players that the incompetence of the coaches and front office kept from reaching full potential, then went on to shine elsewhere.
    Here’s hoping the new owners keep the team in Buffalo, but clean house to in the org from the top down.

    Yeah, I seriously doubt the phone has been ringing off the hook at One Bills Drive for TJ. Just not consistent, even in the kickoff returns. As for wide receiver, they have better players. Hogan is WAY better than Graham (despite his TWO major drops last night!). I like our wide receiver corps, just hope and pray that EJ will start to look like an NFL quarterback!! Even a bad one!!
