Graham (shoulder) worked with the team's strength and conditioning coach Thursday, Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com reports.
Graham has been nursing a shoulder injury for roughly two weeks now, but the 30-year-old appears to be closing in a return to the gridiron. For the most part, Denver has remained mum regarding the details of his ailment, but the notion that Graham was spotted rehabbing is encouraging no matter how you slice it. The seven-year vet is hoping to rekindle some of his production from 2013, but in order to do so he must first get back to 100 percent.

Graham missed Saturday's practice with an undisclosed injury, the Denver Post reports.
In the offseason, Graham joined forces with head coach Gary Kubiak for the second time in his career. Embedded in a TE corps without a clear-cut No. 1, Graham has an opportunity to secure a consistent role in the Broncos' offense. However, he went without a target in Thursday's preseason game at Chicago, while Virgil Green (three catches for 26 yards) and Jeff Heuerman (one reception for six yards) were both on the receiving end of passes.

The Broncos have signed Graham to a one-year contract.
Graham gives the Broncos added depth at tight end to go along with Virgil Green, Jeff Heuerman, Richard Gordon and Manasseh Garner. His chances of securing a role in the Denver offense this season are bolstered by his past experience working with coach Gary Kubiak, while the two were with the Texans. Graham caught just four passes for 30 yards and a TD in eight games in 2015, but he did snag a career-high 49 catches for 545 yards and five TDs in 13 games for Houston back in 2013.

Graham was released by the Texans on Thursday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.
The move doesn't come as much of a surprise after Graham fell out of favor over the second half of the 2015 season. The Wisconsin product played in each of the first eight games but was inactive for the final eight after Ryan Griffin came off of the short-term injured reserve list. At 29 years old, Graham still has time to resurrect his once-promising career, but he'll be doing it somewhere other than Houston. In releasing Graham, the Texans save roughly $3.9 million in salary for 2016.

Graham was inactive for Saturday's playoff game against the Chiefs.
Graham was once an up-and-coming tight end, who caught 49 of 89 targets with five touchdowns in 2013. The Texans re-signed him to a three-year deal coming off that season, but he was from a different regime and never became an important piece for head coach Bill O'Brien. Griffin played in the first eight games of the season, but never again once Ryan Griffin came off short-term injured reserve. He's got one year left on his contract, but is a candidate to be released in March.
