Posted November 20, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Carolina Panthers have waived kicker Justin Medlock and replaced him with Graham Gano. The Panthers (2-8) signed Gano, a free agent, to a two-year deal after Medlock missed his last three field goals. Gano spent 2009-11 with the Washington Redskins, playing in 36 games and converting 59 of 80 field goal attempts (73.8 percent) with a long of 59 yards. Gano entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with Baltimore in 2009 before being released by the Ravens. Medlock started the season 7 of 7 before having a kick blocked against Washington. He then missed field goals against Denver and Tampa Bay. Medlock's second-quarter miss from 40 yards on Sunday against the Bucs would have put the Panthers up 17-10. Carolina lost to Tampa Bay 27-21 in overtime. The Panthers face the Eagles (3-7) on Monday night.
