The Cleveland Browns released second-year kicker Zane Gonzalezon Monday after he missed two field goals and two extra points in the 21-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 2, according to Mary Kay Cabotof Cleveland.com.
During Sunday’s game, the 23-year-old missed what would have been a go-ahead extra point with 1:16 remaining before missing a potential game-tying field goal from 52 yards out with eight seconds left.
That performance came on the heels of Gonzalez missing a 43-yard field goal in overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1. Cleveland was forced to settle for a 21-21 tie.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Browns will sign Greg Joseph, who was previously with the Miami Dolphins. ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported Gonzalez will undergo an MRI on Monday for a groin injury, which may have played a factor in not only the missed field goals but also the release.
