Most of the Detroit Lions special teamers came to training camp with decent job security.
But that's not so for the pair a punters. Ryan Donahue earned the job last season as a rookie, but a quadriceps injury midway through the season opened the door for veteran Ben Graham.
The duo has split most of the duty so far in camp and during the Lions' two preseason games and both know only one man will get the job.
''You're expected to play at the highest level all the time and the competition makes it better and it makes you better as a punter,'' said Donahue, who ended Nick Harris' eight-year run as Detroit's punter out of camp last summer.
Kicker Jason Hanson is prepping for his 21st season with the franchise and Stefan Logan should again be the return specialist.
