Redskins Cut Graham



In one of the smartest moves in Redskins history, the Redskins have cut kicker Shayne Graham. Graham lasted one game (2 kicks) for the D.C. franchise.

In cased you missed it, the first drive for the Redskins ended with a chip shot 29 yard field goal. That is until Shayne Graham stepped on the field for the attempt. The key word for Graham is ATTEMPT. The kick was lined up on the right hash and Graham preceded to kick the ball across the front of the uprights and so far wide left that a fan in the left corner of the endzone caught the ball! C'mon MAN!! Grahams second attempt was from about 40 yards out. He then pushed that one wide right.

So from one Graham to the other we go! The Redskins sole remaining kicker is now Graham Gano. Gano went 3 for 3 and kicked a 45 yard field in the final three minutes to seal the game for the Redskins.
