The Cleveland Browns have signed kicker Shayne Graham as unrestricted free agent, the club announced Tuesday.
The 12-year veteran is fifth in NFL history with an 85.4% success rate on field goals.
Originally signed by New Orleans as an undrafted free agent in 2000, Graham has appeared in 155 career regular season games and converted on 245 of 297 field goal attempts and 368 of 373 (98.7%) PATs for 1,103 career points.
Last year set a HoustonTexans’ franchise record with a career-high 138 points, which ranked fifth in the league. He connected on 31 of 38 (81.5%) field goal attempts and set a career-high with 28 touchbacks on kickoffs. Graham was selected to the Pro Bowl following the 2005 season after he finished third in the NFL with 131 points, while connecting on 28 of 32 (87.6%) field goal attempts. He spent eight seasons (2003-09) with Cincinnati and set Bengals’ records for points in a season (131 in 2005), field goals in a season (31 in 2007) and field goals in a single-game (7 in 2007).
