Is anybody else quite tired of people saying that this or that TE won't see many targets but "is a big red-zone target"?

Being a "big target" is sort of part of being a TE. I can't think of any TEs in the league who would not be a "big target". Under the reasoning they use for picking up Graham, you could pick up any other TE that plays near the goal line. There's really no basis for choosing Graham over, say, Brandon Manumaleuna or Mark Bruener.

Sure there is. Graham had 7 TD's one year for the Patriots. Manumaleuna or Bruener have never shown that kind of red zone potential.
