Report: Browns to test Cundiff, Carpenter
By Jamison Hensley
The Cleveland Browns will eventually add a kicker to their roster, and it looks like Tuesday will be the day.
Billy Cundiff and Dan Carpenter are among the kickers who will try out for the Browns on Tuesday, according to The Plain Dealer. Both were most recently cut by the New York Jets, who went with Nick Folk.
Cundiff has experience kicking in the AFC North, having previously played for the Ravens and Browns. But he hasn't been the same since missing a field goal in the 2012 AFC Championship Game.
Carpenter spent the past five seasons with the Miami Dolphins, making 81.9 percent of his field goals. He's been cut by three teams (Dolphins, Cardinals and Jets) over the past 19 days.
As ESPN Radio in Cleveland pointed out, other free-agent kickers include Justin Medlock, Olindo Mare and Neil Rackers. The Browns have been without a kicker on their roster since cutting Shayne Graham and Brandon Bogotay on Saturday.
