Former Buffalo Bills receiver T.J. Graham has a new home.
Graham was claimed off waivers today by the Tennessee Titans, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Under the NFL's new rules for practice squads, Graham was eligible for the Bills, but the team never got that chance. The former third-round draft pick has 54 career catches for 683 yards and three touchdowns in his first two seasons. The Bills traded up in the 2012 draft to draft him 69th overall.
Graham, who ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, had offseason hip surgery. He struggled at the start of training camp, but started to come on later in the preseason. He finished with five catches for 66 yards, averaged 23.4 yards on five kickoff returns and 7.0 yards on a team-high 11 punt returns in the Bills' five preseason games. But that wasn't enough to crack the Bills' top six receivers. Buffalo drafted a player with a similar skill set to Graham in Marquise Goodwin in 2013, and veteran Marcus Easley's coverage ability on special teams earned him the sixth and final wide receiver job.
The Titans kept five receivers on their initial 53-man roster, including veteran Derek Hagan, who had a cup of coffee with the Bills in 2011.
