Dolphins sign Shayne Graham to fill in for Carpenter

The Dolphins will announce in the coming minutes that they have signed former Cinncinati kicker
Shayne Graham.

Graham will fill in on Sunday for Dan Carpenter, who is battling a groin injury that will prevent him from playing against the Buffalo Bills. Graham is in his 11th NFL season. He kicked seven seasons with Cincinnati and most recently was with the New England Patriots.

Graham was 12 of 12 on field goals and 35 if 37 on extra points for the Patriots last season. He is, by the way, a field goal kicker of high regard. His kickoffs?

Not exactly a boomer. But you must remember he'll be kicking from 5 yards closer than he has previously in his career so the issue is mitigated.
