Veteran placekicker Martin Gramatica’s experiences with the Saints in 2007 were so positive that the Kansas State alumnus shunned the opportunity to test the unrestricted free agent waters and has agreed to stay with the Black-and-Gold and compete for the kicking duties in 2008.

Gramatica connected on all five of his field goal opportunities and was eight-of-eight on extra points while with the Saints.
