The Washington Redskins have cut auditioning veteran kicker Shayne Graham two days after he missed a pair of field goals in Friday night’s preseason opener, a source confirmed.
Graham was trying to unseat Graham Gano, who struggled last season but made all three field goal attempts on Friday.
Graham, the third most accurate kicker in league history, had struggled in practice last week and couldn’t redeem himself Friday. It wasn’t immediately clear if the Redskins would bring in another kicker to compete with Gano.
