Graham Gano says being cut by the Redskins ‘best thing that has ever happened’

(John McDonnell/The Washington Post)

For whatever reason you choose to believe, a fair amount of people who leave the Redskins organization seem to be pretty happy to be getting out of dodge.  One of those is former place kicker Graham Gano, who had some harsh words for his former team.


I’m not sure how David Akers, Shaun Suisham and Nick Novak will feel about being brought into that sentiment.

As for Gano, he went undrafted in 2009, was signed by the Ravens who waived him before that season started and spent that year in the UFL. The Redskins signed him in 2010 and kept him for multiple seasons. He had a career-high 118-point season with the Redskins and career long, franchise record 59-yard kick with the Redskins. So, one could argue that being signed by the Redskins was one of the best things that has ever happened to him. But, you know, glass half empty and all.
