Vikings signed K Taylor Mehlhaff and LB Kenny Onatolu to futures contracts.

Mehlhaff, who flopped with the Saints after being drafted last April, will serve as a camp leg behind entrenched starter Ryan Longwell in the offseason.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports the Saints have released K Taylor Mehlhaff.

Mehlhaff's missed extra point Sunday cost him a job. The Saints have not announced a replacement, but they have a bye week to figure things out. Perhaps they're hoping the Giants turn back to Lawrence Tynes and release long-time Saint John Carney.

Saints re-signed K Taylor Mehlhaff.

Martin Gramatica went on injured reserve with his bum groin; he wasn't cut as Mehlhaff told a South Dakota paper he would be. Mehlhaff was solid in the preseason and will be kicking in a dome on a high-octane offense.

Kicker Taylor Mehlhaff has told the Aberdeen News of South Dakota that he will sign with the Saints pending a physical Wednesday.

Mehlhaff says he was told by the Saints that Martin Gramatica will be released. The rookie sixth-rounder should begin taking over kicking duties this Sunday against the Raiders, and he's worth grabbing in a high-scoring offense.

Saints waived K Tyler Mehlhaff.

Mehlhaff was the highest kicker drafted in April and could draw interest, but he's not outstanding on kickoffs. Martin Gramatica won't have ideal job security, but is a decent fantasy option kicking in a dome on a good offense.

Saints Ks Taylor Mehlhaff and Martin Gramatica are both perfect on field goal tries through three exhibition games.

If the race stays dead even heading to Saturday, tie probably goes to the rookie draft pick. Still, this isn't a situation to invest in for fantasy yet.

Saints agreed to terms with sixth-round K Taylor Mehlhaff on a three-year contract.

Mehlhaff finished his college career as Wisconsin's second all time leading scorer. He was first-team All America as a senior. Mehlhaff doesn't have a monster leg, but he's accurate and will benefit from playing in New Orleans' dome. He's a kicker to monitor with Nick Folk-like potential as a rookie.

Saints selected Wisconsin K Taylor Mehlhaff with the No. 178 overall pick in the draft.

Martin Gramatica won't be handed anything. Kickers that are drafted usually become the heavy favorites to start unless they're complete busts like Justin Medlock. In a Saints offense that should bounce back in 2008, Mehlhaff has some Nick Folk fantasy potential. He'll be kicking in a comfortable dome.
