The Browns have added another punter, signing free agent Jake Schum. The club announced the move Thursday.
Schum, 24, posted a 39.0-yard average in 2011 as a senior at the University of Buffalo. He went undrafted last April and did not play in the NFL. According to the Spectrum, the university’s independent student paper, Schum worked out at Buffalo’s pro day earlier in March.
The signing of Schum (seen holding in the photo here) gives the Browns two punters under contract. Spencer Lanning, the other punter on the roster, has kicked in six preseason games in the last two summers. Like Schum, he hasn’t kicked in an NFL regular-season game.
Reggie Hodges, who punted for the Browns last season, is an unrestricted free agent.
