He might not be a win-now player, but you could probably flip him for a draft pick.

Looking at it close up it makes sense. Veteran kicker retained, QB with more experience retained. Still not sure why they even gambled with Champ, he was a longshot even if healthy.

Re: K Graham resigned, QB Ryan Released

Graham? Graham??? Of all the kickers that are or were out there on the market?

Reckon we're going with the evil we know instead of going with the evil we don't know in this kicker situation...

Who's to say they didn't try?
Besides, he will likely clear waivers since it's it so late in the week, then we can always activate him from the practice squad to keep him.
Another brilliant move by the front office.

Exactly. But, make that 9 years from now with at least four Lombardi's under his belt.

Surprised it was not a player to IR. Oh well, maybe he makes the PS. Probably he doesn't...

On to glory!

Picked the wrong kicker even worst you waive the wrong player to get him; why not waive a injured player not going to play next week?
