Cleveland Browns lose again after Zane Gonzalez misses crucial kicks

Greg-Joseph Cleveland Browns lose again after Zane Gonzalez misses crucial kicks

Zane Gonzalez is waived day after missing four kicks in loss to the Saints; Greg Joseph spent the preseason with the Dolphins after a strong college career.

Saints specialist Taysom Hill (7) celebrates after a missed 52 yard field goal attempt by Cleveland Browns place kicker Zane Gonzalez (2) in the final seconds of the fourth quarter at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The organization and its fans certainly are cursing to the skies after kicker Zane Gonzalez missed critical chances in consecutive weeks, including a go-ahead PAT and a game-tying field goal to force overtime in New Orleans.

Joseph is an undrafted rookie from Florida Atlantic.

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.

Sure, Gonzalez's teammates had his back, at least publicly, and fellow kicker Wil Lutz of the Saints made a point of consoling Gonzalez on the sideline after the game. Schefter reports that the Browns could reach an injury settlement with Gonzalez or put him on waivers, with an injury. Gonzalez also had a potential game-winning FG blocked in the Week 1 tie with Pittsburgh.

The Browns play the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football in week three. And for Gonzalez, it's likely to get worse before it gets better. Whether or not there will be a new kicker in town will remain to be seen.
