WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — For Saints kicker Shayne Graham, it started not too far from here: across the state line in his hometown of Radford, Virginia, and then at nearby Virginia Tech.

And it might be that it ends here, or at least in New Orleans at the end of the preseason, a 15-year NFL career that has seen Graham in the uniform of nine teams, including the 2000 Saints who cut the then-rookie in favor of Doug Brien.

Derek Dimke, trying to make an NFL roster for the first time, is pushing hard to earn the job.

But knowing that this might be his final stop hasn’t stopped Graham from paying it forward, so to speak: doing all he can to aid Dimke even though ultimately it might cost him his livelihood.

“We’re friends,” Graham said after the Saints’ Tuesday morning practice. “If we see things, with share them with each other. “It really comes down to who performs best. Just because you know the consequences, bringing a lot of negative energy into this isn’t going to help anybody.”

Admirable attitude.

Besides, there's a definite feeling of satisfaction knowing that you've helped someone achieve something great.
