FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Ben Graham was just another unemployed punter last November.
Cards gearing up for pre-season re-match against Steelers - The Cardinals are gearing up for a big pre-season re-match against the Pittsburgh Steelers. azfamily.com's Brad Cesmat is there for the game, which you can see tonight on 3TV.
Two months later, he became the first Australian to appear in the Super Bowl -- punting for the Arizona Cardinals.
A former Australian Rules Football star, Graham was cut three times last season, twice by the New York Jets and once by New Orleans. But he's been a welcome addition to an Arizona team that has had its share of punting problems in recent years.
With quarterback Kurt Warner throwing to fellow Pro Bowlers Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals don't expect to punt very often.
When they do, they're glad to have the 35-year-old Graham handling the oft-unappreciated chore.
