ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos on Wednesday released veteran tight end
Graham has played nine seasons in the NFL, four of which came in Denver after five with the Patriots.
"Our organization is extremely grateful for the character, leadership and high level of play that Daniel Graham brought to the Broncos during his four seasons with this team," Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway said. "Beginning at Thomas Jefferson High School and throughout his time at the University of Colorado and as a Broncos team captain, Daniel always has been embraced and respected by everyone in Denver."
In his career, Graham has amassed 222 receptions for 2,465 yards and 24 touchdowns. Last year, he finished seventh on the team with 18 catches for 148 yards, snapping a streak of eight consecutive seasons with at least one touchdown.
The two-time Super Bowl champion is one of only 11 players to start a game at the high school, college and NFL level for a team in the state of Colorado.
"We are thankful to Daniel for all of his dedication to the Broncos and this community, and we wish him all the best," Elway said.
