Shayne Graham

Shayne Graham is a former placekicker who had a lengthy NFL career. He was initially signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2000. Graham played for several teams throughout his career, including the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, New York Giants, and Atlanta Falcons, among others.

He is perhaps best known for his time with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he was selected to the Pro Bowl and named a 2nd-team All-Pro in 2005. During that season, he made 28 of 32 field goal attempts and all 47 of his extra-point tries.

Graham’s reliability as a kicker made him a sought-after player for many teams looking for stability at the position. Over the course of his career, he scored over 1,200 points, making him one of the more productive kickers in NFL history. He has also been remarkably accurate, with a career field goal percentage of 85.5%.

Ryan Driskell

Jeff Driskel was drafted in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He is a quarterback who has served primarily as a backup during his NFL career. Driskel has played for multiple teams, including the Bengals, Lions, Broncos and Texans.

He has occasionally started games due to injuries to first-string quarterbacks and has showcased his athleticism and arm strength in those opportunities.

While his statistics may not be standout, Driskel’s ability to step into the role when needed makes him a valuable asset as a backup quarterback in the NFL.

A.J. McCarron

A.J. McCarron entered the NFL as a fifth-round draft pick (164th overall) by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University of Alabama, where he had a highly successful career that included two BCS National Championships.

In the NFL, McCarron primarily served as a backup quarterback. He spent his first four seasons with the Bengals, where he saw limited action but did start a few games. His most notable moment with the Bengals came in the 2015 playoffs when he started in place of an injured Andy Dalton but ultimately lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After his time in Cincinnati, McCarron had brief stints with several teams, including the Buffalo Bills (although never saw action in Buffalo), Oakland Raiders, and Houston Texans.
