Bucs’ Graham has Pro Bowl plans … at fullback

Earnest Graham is back running with the Buccaneers’ first-team offense. The only difference is that this time, it’s at fullback.

But unlike others who are asked to change positions or take on different roles, Graham doesn’t seem to mind. He told Pewterreport.com he has a lofty goal in mind.

“I’m shooting to be a Pro Bowl fullback,” Graham said. “I really believe every time I catch the ball in the flat it can be a first down. I think I can break a few [tackles]. I’m focusing on being a fullback and catching 60 passes. I think I can really do that. Once Josh [Freeman] gets really comfortable and I’m running routes outside the backfield I think we can do some damage out there.”

Because of Graham’s all-around skills (1,222 total yards in 2007) and the fact that things change (let’s be honest, it is only June), it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him in a variety of roles for the Bucs. For now, though, his work at fullback at least signals the intention of again splitting the running back duties between Derrick Ward and Carnell Williams.
