Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens wants a kicker who can put the ball between the yellow poles, which could call for a free agent signing
Head coach Freddie Kitchens sounded like he wasn’t completely sold on either the Cleveland Browns kickers who are fighting for a spot right now. Following a game that saw both Austin Seibert and Greg Joseph miss a long attempt, Kitchens said the team isn’t looking to make a change but added the dreaded word — yet.
The team could decide to make a change if the struggles continue as the regular season approaches. And while the coach has said he wants one of their current players to succeed, he also made it clear that they expect better than what they have seen in practices and the preseason games.
When talking about their performances, the head coach made it simple — they want someone who can make kicks.
"“I know this, it didn’t go through the upright. I know there are no excuses coming from that room. Their job is to put the ball through the upright. I don’t care who is holding. I can go out there and hold it for them, and it better go through the upright. That’s their job.” — Kitchens said via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com"
With that being the case, the Browns may want to go out and find a free agent veteran who can help them out. The options may be limited, but there are a few players available in free agency that have had some success in the NFL that should be considered.
