The Denver Broncos have released nine-year veteran tight end Daniel Graham.
John Elway, the team's chief football executive, praised Graham for his character, the leadership and play he brought the Broncos for four seasons.
Graham grew up in Denver, where his father, Tom, played linebacker for the Broncos from 1972-74. He was a 2002 first-round draft pick of the New England Patriots after a standout career at Colorado and joined the Broncos in 2007.
Graham's play slipped last season, when he had 18 catches for 148 yards but dropped a number of passes.
