Per Twitter, Brandon Graham is coming off the PUP list tonight to play against Chicago for his 2011 season debut after his bigtime knee injury last year.  A lot has been expected of him since he was chosen 13th overall last year, but hopefully this year he'll ease back into the game after fully recovering and set himself up for a breakout 2012 season.

The game, as usual, will be on at 8:30 EST on ESPN.  Make sure to watch and root for one of the best guys from the 2009 team along with teammate Jason Avant. (But hopefully not Tacopants.)

More Michigan/NFL news today:  former UM CB/WR Doug Dutch was traded from the Redskins to the Ravens for QB John Beck.

As Rotoworld mentions briefly, Dutch went undrafted (shocker) out of UM.  Not sure what that says about his value that he was traded for Beck.

The Michigan alumni-happy Patriots signed former Michigan TE Carson Butler.

Carson's now with his sixth team (undrafted, Packers, Lions, 49ers, Bengals, Giants, Patriots), and who knows?  Maybe he'll finally stick there as New England seems to have a fondness for Wolverines.  Good luck to the former nerd massacrist.
