Breaking: New York Giants Sign Kicker Graham Gano To Three-Year Extension

The New York Giants have signed kicker Graham Gano to a three-year extension worth $14M with $9.5M guaranteed. Gano will not be a free-agent until 2024 when he will be 37 years old.

The Giants picked up Gano in the offseason after the team released veteran kicker Chandler Catanzaro. Catanzaro replaced Aldrick Rosas, who was cut due to off the field issues in Chico, California.

Through 10 games, Graham Gano is responsible for most of the team’s points. The offense has struggled tremendously and Gano has come in the clutch for Big Blue often this season. Gano scored 79 points through the first ten games. He has only missed one field goal this season, making 21 of 22 this season. Gano made all of his 16 extra-point attempts as well.

Before his arrival in New York, Gano kicked for the Carolina Panthers. The Giants took a risk on Gano, knowing he had not kicked in almost two seasons. The Carolina Panthers released him due to his vulnerability to injuries.

Graham Gano signed as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State with the Baltimore Ravens in 2009. Then, he spent some time with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League. Gano found his way back into the NFL, signing with the Washington Redskins. He spent three seasons as their placekicker before being released. Gano signed with the Panthers in 2012 and remained their placekicker until 2019. While he spent time in Carolina, he made the Pro Bowl in 2017, a feat he could achieve this season.
