by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shayne Graham: Cut by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham was cut by the Falcons on Friday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Graham was brought into Atlanta after fellow Matt Bryant got injured last season with five games remaining. In his abbreviated stint with the team, Graham converted 11 of 13 field goal tries, which earned him the opportunity to compete with Bryant to start this season. However, following the preseason, the Falcons have apparently now opted to stick with Bryant, sending the 19-year veteran Graham packing.

Falcons' Shayne Graham: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham signed a contract with the Falcons on Saturday.

Graham is no stranger to Atlanta. After Matt Bryant went down due to a quadriceps injury last season, Graham assumed kicking duties for the Falcons. In his short five-game stint, Graham connected on 11 of 13 tries and hit all of his eight extra point attempts. Entering his 19th season, Graham hasn't showed any signs of decay and could be a solid option at kicker for an offense expected to score a lot of points in 2016.

Falcons' Shayne Graham: Fills in admirably
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graham signed with the Falcons after Matt Bryant suffered a quadriceps injury, and he connected with 11-of-13 field goals in five games.

The 38-year-old filled in well, all things considered. Matt Bryant has one year left on his contract, and while the team will probably look for a younger option this season, the 38-year-old Graham isn't going to be a long term option.
