Veteran K Shayne Graham announced Monday that he’s officially retiring from the NFL after 15 seasons with 10 teams.
“One of the great regrets I have in my career is that I didn’t realize how good I had it in Cincinnati,” Graham said, via Bengals.com. “There was a time I fooled myself into thinking there were other things more important than what they were. I lost grasp of what true reality was. When I look back on it I feel like I could have been there a lot longer if I made different decisions. But think it made me a better person, made me a better professional.”
Graham, 39, played for several teams over the course of his 15-year NFL career including the Bills, Panthers, Bengals, Patriots, Ravens, Texans, Saints and most recently the Falcons.
In total, Graham converted 277 of 324 field goal attempts (85.5 percent) to go along with 429 of 435 extra point tries (98.6 percent) over the course of 178 games.
Graham was a Pro Bowl selection back in 2005 and a second-team All-Pro while playing for the Bengals.
