Patriots to sign Shayne Graham

The Patriots won’t confirm the severity of kicker Stephen Gostkowski’s quad injury, but they will speak loudly with their actions.

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports the team will sign Shayne Graham to replace Gostkowski for this week’s game against the Steelers.  Tom Curran of Comcast Sports New England first reported Monday that Graham was expected to join the team.  (That was before Curran’s death-defying turkey dodging incident.)

Graham could wind up taking some big kicks for the Patriots, who face the Steelers and Colts the next two weeks.

    But my Cowboys might need a FG kicker if Beuhler doesnt work out, IF they wanna make the playoffs. Wait….oh.

    Is it really that hard for a punter to learn the placekick?

    @benh999 – probably not in an emegency situation, however, you still need someone to hold. Most teams use the punter in these instances because they dont want to take reps away from the 2nd string QB.

    As long as Gostkowski is healthy before the playoffs, Graham is not a bad pickup. To think of all those times the Bengals franchised Graham, only for him to Finkle out when it mattered.

    Maybe they could get Suh to kick extra points

    Two kickers in one Shank Graham and Money Graham. Everyone likes a bipolar kicker.
