Browns Ink Kicker Billy Cundiff

The Browns finally have a kicker, as today the team inked Billy Cundiff.

Cundiff, a 6-1, 212-pound kicker in his eighth NFL season out of Drake, has appeared in 106 career regular-season contests.

He has connected on 139 of 184 (75.5 percent) career field-goal attempts and 217 of 218 (99.5 percent) extra points. He has scored 634 career points in the regular season and has a career-long field goal of 56 yards. In postseason play, Cundiff is 12 of 14 (85.7 percent) on field goals and 14 of 14 on PATs, for 50 points.

Cundiff re-joins the Browns, where he appeared in five games during the 2009 season. During that time, he made all four field-goal tries, including an 18-yard game-winning field goal with 22 seconds remaining in a 6-3 victory over Buffalo at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

A first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler in 2010, Cundiff was originally signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2002 and spent four seasons (2002-05) with the Cowboys. He has also appeared in games with New Orleans (2006), Baltimore (2009-11) and Washington (2012).

He spent the 2013 preseason with the New York Jets, where he connected on all three of his field-goal attempts. He was waived on Aug. 28.

    Really? We don’t sign the best place kicker in the league because of his age. We need to go with the youth movement, Banner doesn’t like players over 30. So now we sign a 33 year old who has been broght in to 11 other teams where he did not make it through pre- season or more than a coup[le of games with 7 of them. Well, now I get it. Actually I don’t. Banner decides 2 mil is too much for a kicker who has been the teams offense for the last several years and hired an old hack who gets kicked around as much as the balls that he attempts to put through the goal posts. We are sooooo far under the salary cap that this is just another reason why nobody takes Cleveland seriously. Way to go Joe and Mike, another fine job of taking any headway we have made and putting us back into a poor light with our ineptitude in the front office.

    The whole off-season has a distinct odor, when taken as a whole. The FAs brought in will all start or play major roles in rotation. Bryant, Kruger, Groves, Owens and Bess are all solid additions. So far, so good. Dawson is allowed to get away — for nothing; couple of notches down. Cribbs going is no loss, as he was cut by the Raiders. Draft is not successful by any stretch. I like Mingo and believe he will be a solid contributor. But, the rest of these guys? None will start. Get that? Not a single starter from the entire draft class. With the number of positions that needed upgrading this year, we could not find a single drafted player who could step in immediately? Our UDFAs (9 on this team) are contributing more than our drafted players. What does this say about the people making these personnel evaluations in the first place? The Heckert-era players are all playing — at least the early-round picks. I think, what, 13 of 16 are on the field. Not bad. If this is the quality we can expect from this front office, we are in b-i-i-i-i-g trouble . . .
