Some teams can’t kick about their kickers. Others might want to kick them off the roster after this weekend.With the rare exceptions of Indianapolis’ Adam Vinatieri and Baltimore’s Justin Tucker T. J. Carrie Color Rush Jersey , there aren’t any placekickers whose place in Canton, Ohio, is a topic of discussion. Even Vinatieri and Tucker missed kicks in Week 5.For every hero with his soccer-style boots, there are flops. Graham Gano nails a career-best 63-yarder to lift Carolina past the Giants — tied for second-longest field goal in NFL history — and Greg Joseph sends a flutterball through the uprights to give Cleveland a 12-10 win over Baltimore. Meanwhile, Mason Crosby has the worst Sunday of his 12-year career with four botched field goals and a missed extra point in a 31-23 loss at Detroit.Want more? Maybe not, but here goes:—Chris Boswell missed the extra point after the Steelers‘ first touchdown, the third he’s missed this season. Boswell missed three in his previous three seasons with Pittsburgh.—Caleb Sturgis‘ PAT attempt after one Chargers touchdown bounced off the upright for his fourth miss of the season and third in the past two games. The sixth-year kicker has equaled the amount he had over three seasons in Philadelphia from 2015-17.“The extra point did bother me a little bit, but we’ll figure out what happened there,” Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. “He’s been kicking with a lot of confidence, so I’m not concerned about it.”—The Browns‘ Joseph clanked an extra point off the right upright, the third extra point missed by Cleveland this season. The rookie then pulled a 55-yard field goal left for the win with 5 seconds left in regulation before connecting in OT.—Tucker, the most accurate kicker in NFL history, had a 48-yard field goal attempt blocked by Cleveland rookie Denzel Ward on the final play of the first half. He made three kicks, however https://www.brownsfanshop.com , proving he’s still the league’s most reliable.—Detroit’s Matt Prater missed a 55-yard field goal, badly, sending the football way right. But the strong-legged Prater is one of the best long-range kickers around and holds the record with a 64-yarder for Denver in 2013.—Cincinnati kicker Randy Bullock had a 37-yard field goal try blocked by Vincent Taylor of Miami in the second quarter. The Bengals still rallied from a 17-0 hole to win.—Cairo Santos of the Rams had a chance to tie the score at 31 in Seattle but missed a fourth-quarter extra point. He got a chance to redeem himself and did on a 39-yard field goal for the winning points.—This one is not kicker Stephen Hauschka‘s fault, and he was being celebrated later with a 46-yard field goal to lift Buffalo past Tennessee. But it was an example of the weird day kicking teams were having.The Bills botched a field goal late in the first half — either it was a blown fake or an issue getting the ball down for the kick. Holder Corey Bojorquez stood up after taking the snap and tried a short pass back to Hauschka under pressure from Brynden Trawick of the Titans.—Not to ignore the punters, Atlanta’s Matt Bosher had a kick blocked late in the third quarter when Pittsburgh’s Roosevelt Nix bulldozed in.Clearly, the most forgettable performance came from Crosby, who was crushed by it.“I don’t get this much attention unless it’s really bad or extremely good,” he said. “This one is unfortunately really bad. I’m going to have to really look at this one and this one hurts a bunch. I left a lot of points on the field for this team.“I look back and I’m thinking, in my childhood, in high school, this is definitely one of the worst ones and I’m bummed about that.”What really bums out fans is when coaches play for the field goal. It’s far worse in college, where the dependability of placekickers is shakier than Crosby was Sunday indoors at Detroit.But it infiltrates the NFL, too. And when the kickers flop consistently, they lose their jobs.And like Hauschka and Santos and Sturgis and Bullock Browns Customized Color Rush Jerseys , they somehow pop up elsewhere. Until they start missing again.___ CLEVELAND (AP) — Jamie Gillan already had a cool nickname, “The Scottish Hammer.” He’s got a new title: starting kicker.The undrafted rookie free agent with the thick accent and powerful leg beat out veteran Britton Colquitt as the Browns reduced their roster to 53 on Saturday with general manager John Dorsey pulling off two more trades.Of all of Dorsey’s decisions, the biggest surprise was Gillan over Colquitt, a Pro Bowl alternate last season and former Super Bowl winner in Denver.The Browns have turned their kicking duties over to two rookies: Gillan and kicker Austin Seibert, a fifth-round pick who recovered from an errant start in training camp and made the roster over incumbent Greg Joseph.Seibert made all six field-goal attempts in Cleveland’s final two preseason games to lock up his spot.“What it reflects is we’re comfortable with where we are with those two young guys,” Dorsey said. “They have demonstrated their ability to be skillful at both of their positions. We knew what Greg Joseph was and we knew what Britton Colquitt was as players. That’s why we gave those guys those two games to play because we really didn’t know how they’d respond under pressure. I thought they did a really nice job of taking on the challenge, accepting it and succeeding at achieving that goal.“The organization is excited for the two young men. We have complete confidence in both of their abilities.”With his long hair, Gillan looks like he just walked off a “Game of Thrones” set. He’s quickly become a fan favorite in Cleveland. He has a booming right leg and had a 74-yard punt in an exhibition game against Indianapolis.Gillan’s backstory is fascinating. Born in Scotland, he came to the U.S. when he was 16 and took up place-kicking after watching a high school game. He got a scholarship at Arkansas Pine-Bluff after learning about an opportunity on Facebook.While training this offseason, he literally kicked the air out of three footballs he bought at a store before receiving cares packages of footballs from the Browns and San Francisco 49ers so Gillan could continue to chase his dream.A fifth-round pick from Oklahoma, Seibert got off to a brutal start in training camp but made a small adjustment in his technique and came on strong when it mattered most.The Browns were busy before the 4 p.m. cut-down deadline as Dorsey, who has masterfully revamped Cleveland’s roster, acquired speedy wide receiver Taywan Taylor from Tennessee and guard Justin McCray from Green Bay.The 5-foot-11, 203-pound Taylor has 53 catches for 687 yards and two touchdowns in 29 games Cleveland Browns T-Shirts , but he’s struggled with consistency and drops.Still, he’ll give the Browns another deep, complimentary threat for quarterback Baker Mayfield while Antonio Callaway serves his four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.Dorsey also added depth to his offensive line, bringing in McCray just two days after dealing for guard Wyatt Teller from Buffalo. McCrary has made 13 starts and played in 25 regular-season games.The Browns released a few notable players, including wide receiver and former Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, tight end Seth DeValve and wide receiver Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi, a longshot who had lied his way into a workout with the Browns and returned a punt for a TD in his first preseason game.Dorsey kept three quarterbacks with Drew Stanton and Garrett Gilbert behind Mayfield on the depth chart.Gilbert was signed in April after the Alliance of American Football folded. He’s the leading passer in the defunct league’s brief history, and he led the Browns during the preseason.“I think that when it was Gilbert’s time to shine, he showed he could stand up and he could deliver,” Dorsey said. “You applaud him for how he’s played the game, how he’s progressed in the preseason and how quickly he’s grasped this offensive system and how much he’s grown in his respective role.”
