It's finally a done deal - Shayne Graham will compete with Billy Cundiff for the Ravens' place kicker job.
The Ravens have signed Graham to a one-year deal, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter says the contract can be worth up to $2.5 million if all the incentives are met.
Graham is the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history, converting on 85 percent of his career attempts.
To answer a reader's question about Graham's kickoff abilities, the former Bengal notched 37 touchbacks in the last four seasons. Last year, opponents' average starting field position after Graham's kickoffs was the 28-yard line.
The Ravens met with Graham during the NFL owners meetings in March, and a marriage between the two sides has been expected since then.
A couple weeks ago, I asked Cundiff how he has dealt with the rumors of Graham possibly signing with the Ravens.
"I'm going to be honest, I'm here," Cundiff said. "And I've learned really quick...shoot, I'm 30 and I've been fired like eight times, right? Teams let you know when they don't want you around.
"As long as I'm here, I really could care less about whatever is said, because I have a chance to control what I do, and that's go out and make kicks. After that, I kind of let the rest be."
Cundiff is still "here", but now Graham is "here" as well.
Graham definitely is the early favorite to win the job, but the two kickers will have the next three months to battle it out and see who gets called on when the regular season opens in mid-September.
