Found September 09, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
Shaun Suisham hurt his hamstring this weekend playing in a Steelers loss. As a result, the Steelers have turned to recent Cleveland Browns cast-off Shayne Graham to come in for at least a little while. The Steelers are the 14th different team that has employed the well-traveled Graham at one point or another over the course of his career. Signing with the Steelers means that all four AFC North teams are now represented on that list. So at least for now, Graham isn’t an option should Billy Cundiff falter. It’s really not much fun to be a part of the sloppy seconds kicker parade of the AFC North. Thanks to Phil Dawson, the Browns have largely missed out on these shenanigans over the years. Now, they employ Billy Cundiff for the second time after he was dumped by Baltimore for costing them an AFC playoff game. The Browns had Graham into camp who was most notably with the Bengals in the AFC North from 2003-2009. To think I didn’t think it could feel any worse than when beloved punter Chris Gardocki went to Pittsburgh in 2004 after four years in the orange and brown. If only the Browns could become really, legitimately good, maybe Browns fans could stop caring so much about kickers and punters. To breathe is to dream in Cleveland.
