The New Orleans Saints have signed kicker Shayne Graham and waived quarterback Ryan Griffin, according to the NFL transaction wire.

Graham, a vested veteran, was cut on Saturday during the final move to get to 53 players after battling with rookie Derek Dimke all summer. He was re-signed Tuesday afternoon.

Saints coach Sean Payton said last week the team liked both of their kickers and weren't looking elsewhere after a close battle all through training camp. And despite the availability of veteran kickers such as Connor Barth, Jay Feely and Ryan Succop, he stuck to that plan.

Strange move
Must be other irons in the fire here.
Lorig looks a IR case as does Fortt. Champ coming back on a non guaranteed money?, a move for OL depth?


Still surprised is Graham resigned

Griffin is too good to just let him go for nothing. I'm sure they want to get him through waivers and put him on the practice squad but they're taking a big risk that nobody will claim him.

But he's not a win now player. When Drew retires we can worry about the backup, in 5 years

Re: K Graham resigned, QB Ryan Released

I think Loomis allowed every other team to fill their PS spots, and their QB quotas, then chose to release Griffin and resign Graham. Now, Griffin should slide through waivers and can be resigned to our PS. At least that's how I like to analyze it
