Griffin, a tight end who played at Londonderry High School and then at the University of Connecticut, set Houston's preseason record for receptions (14) and yardage (173) by a receiver this year. Griffin had five receptions for 87 yards in Houston's 24-6 preseason victory over Dallas on Thursday night.
Houston will open the regular season Sept. 9 at San Diego, where Griffin and Nashua's Kendall Reyes will be on opposite sidelines. Reyes, a defensive lineman who played for Nashua North, also attended the University of Connecticut. San Diego chose Reyes in the second round of the 2012 draft.
