Team Needs – K/P: Undrafted free agents are the way to go

The Browns are likely to be a team on the rise next season, but, barring changes, Cleveland’s kicking game won’t be helping the resurgence. Billy Cundiff was very inconsistent last season. While he was great on kickoffs – 42 touchbacks on 65 kicks – he struggled on field goal attempts. Cundiff’s 80.8 percent success rate was good for 25th in the NFL. For comparison, 11...

Top-10 K/P: It’s not sexy, but Cleveland needs to upgrade

Kickers and punters are taken for granted in today’s league. After all, anyone can kick a field goal, right? And don’t even get started on punting – anyone’s 50-year old uncle could go out and make a decent punt. But as with anything in the NFL, players and positions are ranked. And last year, Billy Cundiff and Spencer Lanning both ranked towards the bottom of the league...

Browns' punter completes nerve-racking TD pass

Browns punter Spencer Lanning may not attempt another pass in his NFL career. He made the most of his first one. Cleveland's holder on field-goal attempts, Lanning lofted an 11-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jordan Cameron in Sunday's 31-27 win over Minnesota. The Vikings fell for the trick play when they left Cameron uncovered near the sideline. Cameron said it felt like...

Cleveland Browns execute a perfect fake field goal for touchdown

The Cleveland Browns were lining up for a field goal but the Minnesota Vikings did a poor job of accounting for where all 11 Browns were.  Jordan Cameron was standing by himself off towards the side line when Spencer Lanning found him for the 11-yard touchdown.  So much for the Browns rolling over and going 0-16 after trading Trent Richardson.

NFL Preseason: Cleveland Browns 18, Chicago Bears 16

Spencer Lanning. Who would have thought that Lanning would be the hero of the fourth preseason game? Coming into camp, Lanning was competing with T.J. Conley for the punting  job. After Conley was cut, it appeared that Lanning had won the job. This week the Browns claimed punter Colton Schmidt. The advantage Schmidt has on Lanning is that he can kick-off. Supposedly booming kick...
