UPDATE: McGee’s agent, David Canter, told The Associated Press that his client herniated a disk in his back and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve. Canter said McGee told him he “could hardly feel his legs” in the second half. He will not need surgery.
The Browns have agreed to terms with veteran punter Brad Maynard, according to a league source.
Maynard, in his 15th NFL season, punted for the Bears the past 10 seasons (2001 to 2010) after spending his first four campaigns with the Giants (1997 to 2000).
Maynard averaged 40.1 yards per kick last season, worst in the league. Not ideal, but the Browns will take it after Richmond McGee shanked punts of 20, 28 and 30 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Bengals.
