Browns to replace Gonzalez with Joseph at kicker

Share

On Monday, the team parted ways with the kicker and signed someone else to replace him. As brutal as it's been for the Cleveland Browns in recent memory, their wins and losses are trivial in the grand scheme of things. Additionally, Joseph made 165 of his 170 extra-point tries (97.1 percent) while kicking for the Owls.

The Browns are reportedly trying out kickers on Monday in Cleveland after Zane Gonzalez missed two field goals and a pair of extra points on Sunday. Gonzalez never appeared on the team's injury report and it is unclear if Gonzalez kept the injury to himself. In addition to a shaky outing in New Orleans, he had a potential game-winner against the Steelers in the season opener blocked.

Mark Judge, who has been named as the third person in the room, told The Weekly Standard the allegations were "absolutely nuts" . Ford has also passed a polygraph test which was administered by a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent last month.

It turns out Gonzalez had a groin injury that the team was aware of, but elected to put him out on the field anyway, and the results showed in his misses.

Yet another Zane Gonzalez wrote to the Browns kicker on Twitter: 'Please kick better for the both of us'.

Like the first missed PAT, Gonzalez pulled the kick wide to the left.
