It’s not easy being a punter in the NFL. One season you are on top of the world, the next season you can’t even make the team.
Ben Graham was cut by the Cardinals this weekend. It’s hard to believe that two years ago, he landed an incredible 42 out of 92 punts within the opponents’ 20-yard line, and while leading in the voting for the Pro Bowl for the better part of the season, did get snubbed in the end. And those who appreciate the importance of field position know that it was Graham’s phenomenal punting that was as much a part of their playoff run to the Super Bowl as any other factor.
