Jets | Two Punters Dueling for One Job

Tom Rock, of Newsday, reports New York Jets Ps Micah Knorr and Ben Graham continue to battle for the team's punting job with no clear cut frontrunner emerging so far. Up to this point in the preseason, the opportunities have been split about evenly. The two get the same amount of reps during practices, and in the two preseason games Graham has kicked eight of the 13 punts. Both are left-footed, which presents problems for returners due to abnormal spins, but Graham has befuddled receivers with his end-over-enders and wobbly spirals. "You're looking at two somewhat different people," Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff said of the veteran Knorr and rookie Graham, a convert from Australian League Football. "I wouldn't say one has a leg up. I think it's been a good competition."
