This is the 18th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.

#17- Greg Joseph– K- Florida Atlantic

I call this guy Greg Joseph “Biden” because he oftentimes goes a little wide left. (This is in no way an endorsement or bashing of Joe Biden so please don’t tweet a bunch of pro- or anti-political nonsense from this. That being said, I’m still willing to set the over/under at 2.5 political tweets off this article.) On another note, I’ve always heard that you can’t trust a man with two first names and it’s never a good sign when you can’t trust your kicker.

The beginning of last season was a train wreck for the entire special teams unit in Cleveland. The kicker position was particularly bad with Zane Gonzalez as the starter. After singlehandedly costing the Browns a couple of games, John Dorsey and the boys went with Greg Joseph. The undrafted rookie was fairly average, converting all 11 field goals inside 40 yards but only making 6 out of 9 from anywhere 40+. The most alarming stat was that Joseph missed 4 extra points on the season.

Things got worse for Greg on the third day of this year’s draft, as the Browns selected kicker, Austin Seibert, in the 5th round. Late round picks don’t always make the roster, but if a GM is willing to use draft capital on a special teams player, it’s safe to say that they have him in their plans.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
