Houston Texans rookie tight end Ryan Griffin says that he is keen to take advantage of his opportunities with the team.

Ryan Griffin has said that he is trying to take advantage of every opportunity that he gets with the Houston Texans.

The tight end, who is currently behind Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham on the depth chart, was selected by the AFC South in the sixth round of this year's Draft.

The 23-year-old told the team's official website: "I'm taking advantage of my opportunities, and got a pretty good block in versus Seattle while I was on offense. I was running a cross pattern, and [running back] Arian Foster caught a pass in the flat.

"The guy saw me coming actually and turned his back to me. He didn't think that I had the angle on him but I got my head across and no flag which is always good.

"I'm out there for every special teams unit there is, punt return and cover, kickoff return and cover, hands team, on side, all that. It's a fun part of the game. There's not as many assignments. Offense is all assignments football, but with special teams, you get out there and let your hair down, run around and make a play."

The Texans face the San Francisco 49ers later today.
