NFL: Ravens sign former Bengals K Shayne Graham
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Former Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham has signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
Graham spent the past seven seasons with the Bengals. He went 23 for 28 on field goal tries last season before missing two important kicks within 40 yards in an AFC playoff game against the New York Jets.
The nine-year veteran was released by the Bengals after the season and signed as a free agent Thursday by Baltimore.
Graham and will compete for the starting job against Billy Cundiff, who was hired by the Ravens during the 2009 season to replace struggling kicker Steve Hauschka.
The 32-year-old Graham has made 196 of 230 field goal attempts in his career and missed only three of 279 conversion tries.
