Billy Cundiff signed with the Cleveland Browns, filling the team's need for a kicker just six days before the regular-season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
The Browns cut veteran Shayne Graham and rookie Brandon Bogotay over the weekend. They had reportedly been interested in Dan Carpenter, the former Dolphins Pro Bowl kicker who instead signed with Buffalo.
So the Browns turned to Cundiff, an eight-year veteran who appeared in five games for the Browns in 2009 as an injury replacement for Phil Dawson. Cundiff was released by the Jets over the offseason.
