Shayne Graham, Cincinnati BengalsAge – 32; Experience – 10
2009 Stats: 23-28 (82 %), 53-yard long, 28-29 XP
Breakdown: Graham has the highest career field goal percentage of the free agents (85.2) and is the fourth most-accurate kicker in NFL history. But his field goal percentage has dropped the past two seasons after hitting 91.5 percent of the time in 2007 (which earned him the franchise tag). He missed 35 and 28-yard field goals in the Bengals' 24-21 loss to the Jets in the Wild Card playoffs last year.

Matt StoverAge – 42; Experience – 21
2009 Stats: 9-11 (81.8 %), 43-yard long, 33-33 XP
Breakdown: Baltimore fans are well-aware of the arguments for and against Stover. His distance is waning, which has also left his kickoffs short. Signing Stover would likely require a second kickoff specialist on the roster. But there's always those clutch kicks, an 83.7 career field goal percentage and Stover's strong Baltimore ties.

Shaun SuishamAge – 28; Experience – 5
2009 Stats: 2-3 (66.7 %), 44-yard long, 5-5 XP
Breakdown: Suisham was cut by the Redskins last season in favor of former Raven Graham Gano, who lost out to Steve Hauschka during Training Camp. The journeyman was then picked up in Dallas, where he missed two of three field goals in the Divisional playoffs against Minnesota. He has a career field goal percentage of 79.1.
