Shayne Graham's Good Deed

Shayne Graham is using that one year, 2.5 million dollar contract for a good cause. Through the Shayne Graham Foundation the Bengals kicker is going to provide free health care services for retired Cincinnati area NFL players and coaches. It has been a very public issue that retired NFL players and coaches have has some issues being able to afford health care and have lingering issues from their playing days. I think this is a very class move from a very classy player. Since coming to Cincinnati Shayne Graham has been very involved in the area youth and other philanthropic endeavors. He had teamed up with Doug Pelphrey's Kicks for Kids early in his career and still continues to be involved in that organization. Graham is planning on making the announcement with Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz and former kicker Jim Breech.
