NEW ORLEANS- Derek Dimke takes advantage of every opportunity to prove to the Saints that he belongs on their 53-man roster. Dimke kicked a 23-yard field goal and a 49-yard field goal in the second quarter of the Saints’ preseason game Thursday night. The other Saints’ kicker competing for the job, Shayne Graham, would have kicked field goals in the second half of the game, if there had been an opportunity according to Saints coach Sean Payton. Dimke has made all of his field goal attempts in the preseason. Graham missed a 32-yard extra point in the preseason opener. The Saints fell to the Ravens 22-13.
