Saints K Shayne Graham has survived parts of 14 seasons as a journeyman NFL kicker, so arriving at training camp with no guarantee of a job is hardly unusual for him.
Graham was signed by the Saints last December after the team parted ways with Garrett Hartley. Graham kicked reasonably well, although he missed two field goals in difficult conditions in the Saints' season-ending loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Graham was re-signed by the Saints, who also signed Derek Dimke and brought him to camp to compete for the starting job.
"There's competition there, but (Graham's) efficiency is very good. He'll be a tough guy to beat out," said Saints head coach Sean Payton.
Dimke, 24, hit six field goals in the preseason for Tampa Bay in 2013 and had a brief stint with Detroit in the 2012 preseason, but has never made a regular season NFL roster. Graham is poised to be one of the top fantasy kickers this season.
