Browns to host Dan Carpenter and others for kicker spot


The Cleveland Browns cut Shayne Graham on Saturday leaving no kickers on their 53-man roster.

Graham had been brought in to fill the shoes of Phil Dawson who left in the off-season. Instead the Browns opted to get the 12-year veteran go even as he was 4-for-4 in preseason kicks. The Browns also cut rookie Brandon Bogotay.

That “someone” will be Billy Cundiff.

Dan Carpenter heads of a list of kickers the Browns will take a look at this week. Carpenter was let go by the Dolphins after the team drafted Caleb Sturgis.

Carpenter had been linked to multiple teams weeks ago and was cut at the end of camp by the New York Jets who opted to go with Nick Folk.

Last season Carpenter was 22-of-26 (84.6) and is 127-of-154 for his career. (82.5)
