Browns signing former Dolphins kicker Greg Joseph, report says

Browns signing former Dolphins kicker Greg Joseph, report says

Joseph is a rookie out of Florida Atlantic University that did not make the Miami Dolphins team.

Gonzalez missed two field goals and two extra-point attempts Sunday in the second half of the Browns' 21-18 Week 2 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

There was but one surety after the Cleveland Browns' latest devastating loss, on Sunday in New Orleans: they'd be looking for a new kicker.

Joseph, who made 57-of-82 kicks in college, is Cleveland's third kicker in as many years.

This email will be delivered to your inbox once a day in the morning.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Gonzalez has been kicking with a groin injury that requires an MRI.

Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot tweeted that the Browns had informed Gonzalez that he's getting released; however, if Gonzalez is injured, the team must either waive him with the injured designation, or he could receive an injury settlement.

Then after falling behind by three, the Browns moved into range for the tie and again Gonzalez missed, capping off the worst game of his career. Later, with the chance to give Cleveland a 15-3 lead early in the fourth quarter, Gonzalez's field goal attempt sailed wide left from 44 years away, but his bad day was far from over.

Cleveland Browns NewsThe Browns have been a part of two of the most dramatic finishes to start the National Football League season with each game coming down to the final play.

The social media manager at Clevelanddotcom is certainly well aware that Twitter is one of the most brutal places for criticism and nasty comments, so asking for messages to Gonzalez at this point is like asking to receive a death threat.
