The Cleveland Browns have officially made a change at the PK position, cutting K Billy Cundiff and signing K Garrett Hartley.
Cundiff, in his second season with the Browns, has become a liability for the team in FG situations, missing a kick in each of his last five games and missing seven on the season. His misses were the difference in two critical losses to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3 and to the Indianapolis Colts just last week. Cundiff was named to the All-Pro team and the Pro Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens in 2010.
Hartley has not played since missing two FGs against the St. Louis Rams in Week 15 of the 2013 season. He was good on only 73.3% of his FGs all that year. Hartley was the hero of the 2009 New Orleans Saints Superbowl season, making the game-winning FG in the 2009 NFC Championship game that sent them to their first Superbowl in team history, and then going a perfect 3-for-3 against the Colts in the Superbowl XLIV.
The Browns will need someone clutch to help them keep their narrow playoff hopes alive.
