Browns bring in veteran punter after Week 1 loss

The Cleveland Browns were plagued by a litany of mistakes in their 27-17 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

One of the more noticeable issues was the play of punter Richmond McGee, who averaged a scant 36 yards on eight punts in his Cleveland debut. McGee might not get a second chance to redeem himself, as veteran punter Brad Maynard visited Cleveland on Monday, according to a league source.

The move is a sign that the Browns are still struggling to find a replacement for Reggie Hodges, who was injured during training camp.

Maynard, 37 , is a 15-year veteran, having spent 10 years with the Bears and four with the Giants. Maynard spent time with the Texans in the preseason.
