The Browns will have a new punter this week, as Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network is reporting that the team has agreed to terms with veteran punter Brad Maynard.
Maynard will take the spot of Richmond McGee, who was awful Sunday in the Browns 27-17 loss to the Bengals. His first punt Sunday was 20 yards, and he ends his one week as punter 32nd in gross average after having three punts of 30 yards or less.
According to David Canter, McGee suffered a back injury on Sunday and is headed for the injured reserve list.
Maynard spent the last 10 years with the Bears after beginning his career with the New York Giants. On 1,258 career punts, Maynard has a net average of 36.6 yards. The 37-year-old went to training camp with the Houston Texans, where he lost a competition with undrafted rookie Brett Hartmann.
