Giants sign kicker Shayne Graham

10/16/2010

With placekicker Lawrence Tynes struggling with a left ankle injury, the New York Giants have signed former Bengals kicker Shayne Graham, according to ESPNNewYork's Ohm Youngmisuk. The Giants placed rookie wide receiver Victor Cruz on injured reserve to make room for Graham.

Tynes tested the ankle Saturday morning, but it was determined that he wouldn't be ready for the game. Graham spent seven seaons with the Bengals and connected on 23-of-28 field goals last season. He also had eight touchbacks last season. His best season came in '07 when he made 31 of 34 attempts. There's a chance Graham could stick around for a bit. That's what the Giants did with John Carney a couple years ago.
