Saints re-sign Shayne Graham to 1 year deal

Kicker Shayne Graham is back for another season with the Saints. He’ll be the favorite in camp going up against youngster Dustin Hopkins. I noticed some of you have complained about him coming back but I see it like this. Graham is as cheap as you’re going to get for a “good” kicker.

Saints sign new kicker to practice squad, Shayne Graham on notice?

Cleveland Browns: Replacing Phil Dawson

Kickers are most certainly an afterthought in the NFL, as there are often more than a few that bounce around from team-to-team throughout the course of every season. Most teams consider their kickers to be expendable. Former Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson was the rare exception to this for 14 years, as Dawson had been a member of the Browns since their reboot in 1999. Obviously...
