Graham was cut by the Falcons on Friday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

EDGE Analysis

Graham was brought into Atlanta after fellow Matt Bryant got injured last season with five games remaining. In his abbreviated stint with the team, Graham converted 11 of 13 field goal tries, which earned him the opportunity to compete with Bryant to start this season. However, following the preseason, the Falcons have apparently now opted to stick with Bryant, sending the 19-year veteran Graham packing.

Graham signed a contract with the Falcons on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Graham is no stranger to Atlanta. After Matt Bryant went down due to a quadriceps injury last season, Graham assumed kicking duties for the Falcons. In his short five game stint, Graham connected on 11 of 13 tries and hit all of his eight extra point attempts. Entering his 19th season, Graham hasn't showed any signs of decaying and could be a solid option at kicker for an offense expected to score a lot of points in 2016.

Graham signed with the Falcons after Matt Bryant suffered a quadriceps injury, and he connected with 11-of-13 field goals in five games.

EDGE Analysis

The 38-year-old filled in well, all things considered. Matt Bryant has one year left on his contract, and while the team will probably look for a younger option this season, the 38-year-old Graham isn't going to be a long term option.

Graham made a field goal and an extra point in his only two tries in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Graham was signed to fill in for the injured Matt Bryant, and he did his job Sunday. It's uncertain how long Bryant may be sidelined with the quadriceps injury, so Graham will continue to handle the kicking duties for the foreseeable future.
