Jets | Graham Adds Unique Spin on Punts

Randy Lange, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Jets P Ben Graham has a few unique methods of punting that provide various spins on the ball, making it more difficult for opposing returners to field the ball. Graham, a 31-year old from Australia, had three of his 18 punts muffed during the exhibition season this summer. "If we're backed up," Graham said, "I'll kick what we call [in Australia] a torpedo or spiral. Here they call it a punt." Graham's unique style and control on end-over-end punts can potentially have a significant role for the Jets' special teams coverage units this year. "Because punt returners here aren't used to catching a ball that drops from the sky like that," Graham said, "they might find it a little difficult."
