Marvin Lewis: Shane is a free agent football player. We have to move ahead.

Since allowing Shayne Graham to enter free agency, the Bengals have since signed Dave Rayner and, on Friday, former tOSU Buckeye place kicker Mike Nugent.

When asked about Shayne Graham, head coach Marvin Lewis all but closed the door on any return for Graham. "Shane is a free agent football player. We have to move ahead. I cannot determine what is in Shane’s future, or speak for his representation. We are going to get ready to play football based on the way our football team is put together at this point."

So for all of that scary noise we've heard about a possible return, it seems that the Bengals won't be entertaining a return of a guy who, while tremendously accurate in non-pressure situations, wore out his welcome by missing clutch kicks.
