Graham signed a reserve/future contract with the Falcons on Monday.
Graham had a solid preseason in Atlanta but was unable to make his way onto the 53-man roster in 2018. The 23-year-old out of Yale will hope a full term in the team's offseason program will lead to his NFL debut next year.
Falcons' Jaeden Graham: Team's leading receiver in preseason finale

Graham hauled in three of his four targets for 36 yards during Thursday night's 34-7 loss to Miami.
Currently situated no higher than fourth on the Falcons' depth chart among tight ends, Graham's likelihood of making the 53-man roster to start the season seems faint. With Austin Hooper locked into a starting role, as well as Logan Paulsen and Eric Saubert well-positioned for spots on the active roster, Graham remains a promising candidate to join Atlanta's practice squad in 2018. Given his strong showing in Week 4 of the preseason, however, another team may swoop in to secure the 22-year-old's services for a backup role.
