The Panthers on Tuesday waived the slumping Justin Medlock and replaced him with Gano.||||||| Carolina (2-8) signed Gano, a free agent, to a two-year deal after Medlock missed his last three field goals. Gano spent 2009-11 with the Washington Redskins, playing in 36 games and converting 59 of 80 field goal attempts (73.8 percent) with a long of 59 yards.
Posted Aug. 28, 2012
A person familiar with the move says the Washington Redskins have released Gano and replaced him with Billy Cundiff.||||||| The move comes one day after Gano had appeared to win the kicking job. His lone competition, Neil Rackers, was cut on Monday.

The Redskins cut Neil Rackers on Monday, giving Gano the kicking duties for another season despite an NFL-high 10 missed field goal attempts in 2011.||||||| Coach Mike Shanahan said Gano "won the statistical battle in practice" and that the 25-year-old kicker gets "undue criticism" because the blocks last season weren't the kicker's fault.
