After letting kicker Phil Dawson walk, the Cleveland Browns find themselves with two kickers with different strengths, making it a hard choice to decide who they'll likely use this season. The answer might be both, reports ESPN's Jamison Hensley. The team has Shayne Graham, the fifth-most accurate kicker in NFL history, as your kicker inside the 40, and former Vikings kicker Brandon Bogotay strengths lie in kickoff duties. "It’s been close. It’s been back and forth," head coach Rob Chudzinski said of the competition. "Obviously, you get into the preseason and those games and that will be a very important part of the process of the evaluation. But it’s ongoing all the way through." Hensley writes: ' It's possible the Browns could use Graham to handle most of the field goals and keep Bogotay for kickoffs and long-range kicks. Keeping two kickers is a rarity these days in the NFL, especially since the league moved kickoffs to the 35-yard line in 2011. Last year, only the Buffalo Bills had a kickoff specialist for an extended period and they cut John Potter after six weeks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts didn't have their kickers handle kickoffs and instead let their punters kick off. '
