The Cleveland Browns on Monday signed kicker Brett Maher.
Originally signed as an undrafted college free by the New York Jets in 2013, Maher is officially entering his first NFL season. The University of Nebraska product also has spent time on the Dallas Cowboys roster.
Maher spent the last three seasons playing in the CFL with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Ottawa Redblacks and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Last season for Hamilton, he connected on 41 of 50 field goal attempts and scored 161 points.
Browns kicker Cody Parkey, who was 20 of 25 on field goal attempts and 20 of 21 on extra points last season, has one year left on his contract.
