According to the Boston Herald, the Patriots have signed K Shayne Graham to replace the injured Stephen Gostkowski.
You’ll recall that Graham had a mostly quality seven seasons with the Bengals, but he became known for missing bi g kicks and subsequently was not re-signed after last season.
He was thought to have a leg up on the Ravens job in the preseason, but instead, Billy Cundiff beat him out for the job. Then, he signed with the Giants for a week earlier this year and kicked four field goals before they released him.
Now, he’ll be a temporary fill-in for New England.
And you know what this means, right? Graham’s signing officially makes this the best 24 hours for redheads EVER!!!
Think about it:
Graham gets a couple weeks of salary.
Jason Garrett gets the Cowboys interim job after owner Jerry Jones fired Wade Phillips.
Conan O’Brien debuts on TBS.
What a wonderful day to be a ginger.
