Cardinals Re-Sign P Ben Graham, Release CB Korey Lindsey

The Cardinals have resigned Austrailian punter Ben Graham, and moved cornerback Corey LeGree to the practice squad.

The Arizona Cardinals made a few roster moves on Wednesday as the team announced the re-signing punter Ben Graham, as well as the release of cornerback Korey Lindsey. Lindsey was signed to a practice squad contract though as Arizona let go safety Mark LeGree to make room for Lindsey. 

Punter Dave Zastudil has struggled so far this season and has had issues with his knee the team thinks needs time to rehab.

Word From the Birds BlogWith Zastudil ailing, Graham returns «
The Cardinals have brought punter Ben Graham back, although it’s because the man who replaced him, Dave Zastudil, is suffering from some inflammation of the knee that cropped up late in the Giants’ game. The Cards want to make sure they have a healthy punter available this week in case Zastudil can’t go.

Zastudil’s issues Sunday were well-chronicled — his final punt was a line-drive 40-yarder that was returned 18 yards, helping set up the Giants’ game-winning drive, although his knee (the Cards didn’t say which) may have been bothering him by then.

The 6-5, 236 pound Graham was part of Arizona's final roster cut on September 2 after serving as the Cardinals punter the last three seasons. The native Austrailian punted 94 times for 4,080 yards (43.4 yard avg.) with 29 punts inside the 20-yard line last in 2010 alone. He is the first Australian to ever appear in a Super Bowl, and is tied for the NFL single-season record with 42 punts inside the 20-yard line in 2009

He began the 2008 season with the New York Jets, playing with them for the first four games of the season before being released and coming to Arizona. Graham will wear jersey #5.
