ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions have re-signed punter Ben Graham to a one-year contract.

Graham was the team's punter for the final seven games of last season, putting 10 of 28 punts inside the 20-yard line with only three touchbacks. He replaced Robert Malone, who filled in for one game for the injured Ryan Donahue, and had a kick returned for a touchdown by Chicago's Devin Hester. Graham then signed and punted the rest of the year.

A native of Australia, Graham played previously for the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals. He's entering his eighth NFL season.
