Badger Makes it Big



Garrett Graham has signed a maximum-value deal with the Houston Texans, where he will join another former University of Wisconsin tight end on the roster this fall.
According to the National Football Post website, which cited a league source, Graham agreed to a four-year, $3.115 million contract with the Texans.
The fourth-round draft choice will net a signing bonus of $480,100, the report indicated.
The 6-foot-3, 241-pound Graham caught 121 passes for 1,492 yards and 16 touchdowns for the Badgers, and was a two-time, second-team All-Big Ten Conference selection.
Graham received a lot of reps during the Texans' OTA practices, in part because former UW standout Owen Daniels remains sidelined following reconstructive knee surgery.
Daniels, a former Pro Bowl pick, had 40 catches for 519 yards and five touchdowns in eight games last season before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament.
A restricted free agent entering his fifth season in the NFL, he signed a $3.2 million, one-year tender in June, Daniels is projected to miss all of training camp but told the National Football Post earlier this month that he expects to be on the field for Houston's season opener.  It is great to see that Badgers can make a splash in the NFL.  GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
