"I thought Gano was the best thing for us long term, not just for the next six weeks," Beane said.

As for the decision to waive Medlock, "It's a production based business and we gave Justin an opportunity. He tried his best. He's a good person but unfortunately the results weren't what we were looking for. We decided to explore a couple of guys out there. Both Gano and Kaeding kicked great and it was a tough decision."

Medlock beat out Olindo Mare in training camp to win the kicking job despite having attempted only two field goals in his career. He made a living kicking in the Canadian Football League before landing the starting job with the Panthers.
