Bucs, Graham reach agreement on three-year, $10.5 million deal

2007 Statistics:
Carries: 222

Rush Yards: 898

Touchdowns: 10

The Tampa Buccaneers reached agreement Sunday with running back Earnest Graham on a three-year, $10.5 million contract extension, reports NFL Network's Adam Schefter.

The agreement would eliminate a potential training camp holdout by Graham, who skipped volunatary OTAs but did attend mandatory team minicamp in mid-June.

Graham, 28, became a starter for the first time in his career last season after injuries to Carnell "Cadillac" Williams and Michael Pittman. He started 10 games, rushing for a team-high 898 yards and 10 touchdowns while catching 49 passes for 324 yards.

Graham has been with the Bucs for all four of his NFL seasons after joining Tampa Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2003, spending his first three seasons contributing mainly on special teams.
