After kicker tryouts, New Orleans Saints sticking with Shayne Graham

Graham is 18-20 on FGs and 37-38 on extra points; I doubt that Graham is in danger of being cut. Probably some of Payton's Jedi-mind tricks!

The New Orleans Saints declined to offer contracts to any of the kickers who went through tryouts on Wednesday, according to an NFL source, meaning veteran Shayne Graham will hold on to his job for now.

Doubt that trying out kickers strikes fear in the hearts of other players..

Then why not try out O lineman and D lineman and Tight Ends and Linebackers?

Nice guy and all but I don't have much confidence in him. I would like to see us upgrade and have more distance as well.

Because those positions have pretty much been picked clean this late in the season; I doubt there are players at those positions who could even make the practice squad...

but just because there are kickers available doesn't mean that getting a new one will do anything for us

Champ Bailey, Greer, Vilma, Josh Freeman, Tim Tebow, Charles Godfrey and Michael Sam and a slew of others are all available also... not saying they would help, but neither will a new kicker

Re: After kicker tryouts, New Orleans Saints sticking with Shayne Graham

I feel it's a little late in the season to be making "job threats". Unless he is telling them they won't be on the team next year. This somehow seems like eyewash to me. I could be wrong in my way of looking at this.
