Pitt tight end Hubie Graham will head to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent, according to his Twitter account.
Graham caught a bit of a tough break after transferring to Pitt. He had a solid year in 2011, catching 28 catches for 325 yards and three touchdowns in Todd Graham's offense. But last season, he battled some injuries and didn't make as much of an impact. He was also sharing time with freshman JP Holtz and wasn't able to get as many opportunities.
I think Graham's a solid player, though. He was one of the few players who thrived in Todd Graham's system and that 2011 season proved he can play. Had Graham stayed healthy this year (he only played in seven games), he would have been a productive player.
If he makes the team, he would be reunited with Dave Wannstedt, who is the special teams coach there. Wannstedt took Graham after he transferred from Illinois. And he could actually even coach Graham if the tight end plays on special teams.
