Browns reach agreement with kicker Billy Cundiff

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Browns have reached agreement on a contract with former Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff, who has just a few days to prepare for the season opener.

Cundiff, who previously kicked for Cleveland, auditioned Tuesday for the Browns. The team needed a kicker just four days before playing Miami after terminating veteran Shayne Graham's contract and releasing rookie Brandon Bogotay.

Cundiff made all six field-goal tries for the Browns in 2009, when he filled in for an injured Phil Dawson. Cundiff was cut last month by the New York Jets.

The 33-year-old Cundiff made the Pro Bowl with Baltimore in 2010, but he's best remembered for missing a potential game-tying 32-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the 2012 AFC Championship against New England.

Cundiff has connected on 139 of 184 (75.5%) career field-goal attempts.
