The Red Knights had a history of football success in the 1990s, but fell to 0-10 in the season prior to Graham's arrival. Graham led the team to records of 5-5, 5-5, and 6-3 in his first three season. In 2017, the Red Knights enjoyed their first unbeaten regular season since 1994 and qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2006. They reached the regional semifinals and finished the year with a 9-1 record.
At the beginning of the 2011 season, Graham was again called on to be a fullback and special teams player. However, when Blount was injured during week 5, Graham was thrust back into the featured tailback role for an October 16 home game against the New Orleans Saints. He responded by rushing for 109 yards on 17 carries as the Bucs beat their division rivals 26-20. His one-game yardage total was more than he had gained in either of the previous two seasons in his role as a blocker
Graham again started at running back the following week when the Bucs played the Chicago Bears in London. However, he seriously injured his Achilles tendon during the first quarter and was placed on the injured reserve list two days later, ending his season and NFL career. He became a free agent following the 2011 season.
For the 2009 season, Cadillac Williams finally returned from a series of serious injuries, putting Graham back in the role of a fullback and special teams player.

After skipping voluntary off-season workouts in 2008 due to displeasure with his contract, Graham agreed to a three-year, $10.5 million extension on June 30, 2008. Although the deal contained no guaranteed money, Graham received a $1 million roster bonus for making the regular season roster.
