    The Cleveland Browns announced what seemed inevitable on Monday: The release of kicker Zane Gonzalez and the signing of his replacement Shop Cleveland Browns Baker Mayfield Jerseys , undrafted rookie Greg Joseph.Gonzalez missed four kicks—two field goals and two extra points—in the Browns’ Week 2 loss to the New Orleans Saints. He also missed what would have been a game-winning field goal in overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1.In his two years with the Browns, Gonzalez managed to convert only 68 percent of his field goals, and as noted by Bleacher Report’s Ryan McCrystal, “anything below 75% is pretty much unheard of these days, and means you’re probably out of the league very soon.”The rookie Joseph may or may not prove to be much of an upgrade Baker Mayfield Salute To Service Jersey , though. The Johannesburg, South Africa native doesn’t have a much better field-goal make percentage in his four years as the kicker for Florida Atlantic, at 69 percent. His extra-point make percentage of 97.1 percent, though, is strikingly better than Gonzalez’s 90.3 percent.It’s possible that Gonzalez’s struggles this year are injury-related; ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that Gonzalez “has been kicking with a groin injury Browns Odell Beckham Jerseys ,” though the kicker did not show up on the Browns’ injury report this week nor was injury mentioned in the Browns’ announcement of his waiving.While the Browns also had some interest in veteran kickers Blair Walsh and Cairo Santos, they decided to defer to the younger, yet less-experienced Joseph. Meanwhile, it’s expected the Minnesota Vikings will sign free agent Dan Bailey after releasing rookie kicker Daniel Carlson on Monday. The Browns lost three defensive players to injuries and two of them will not return to action this season.Cornerback E.J. Gaines and linebacker Christian Kirksey were placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Cornerback Denzel Ward was the other starter to go down, but his hip injury does not appear to be a season-ender.Gaines suffered a concussion on a first quarter touchdown by Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt. The Week Nine game was his first game back after missing two games with another concussion and two head injuries in close succession is never a good sign for a player.Gaines also missed Week One with a knee injury and had 13 tackles and an interception in six games.Kirksey hurt his hamstring in the second half against the Chiefs. The veteran missed time earlier in the year with shoulder and ankle injuries as well. He had 43 tackles and two interceptions in seven appearances.The Browns filled one of the roster spots by signing cornerback Juston Burris off of the Jets practice squad. Burris was a fourth-round pick in 2016 and played in four games for the Jets this season Odell Beckham Jerseys 2019 , but was not active for their Week Three loss to the Browns.
