The Browns have added some experience at punter, signing free agent T.J. Conley, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reported Monday.

The 27-year-old Conley was the Jets’ regular punter in 2011. He ranked 30th in the NFL in gross average (42.7 yards) and 18th in net average (38.8). The Jets released him last September, replacing him with Robert Malone.

Conley was most recently with the Vikings, who released him in April after signing him in January. The Vikings are going with rookie Jeff Locke at punter.

The Browns did not have a punter with regular-season experience on the roster until the reported agreement with Conley. Reggie Hodges, their punter in 2012, is an unrestricted free agent.

The Browns begin OTAs on Tuesday.

    What–? Where’s the “Brown’s pass over Former NFL Punter Chris Kluwe” angle???

    At least Kluwe played in the NFL last year.

    Fail. I feel you dalcow4. We pass on Kluwe for a guy who was 30th in the league out of 32? I know Kluwe was 23rd, but still. Damn, it would be nice to get players that other teams actually want. What is the strategy here, to just bring bums in?

    It has been said in football that the best defense is a great special teams, and that includes a great punter. This guy is not even a good punter and he mimics Sergio Garcia as much as he shanks punts. This guy will cost us games. Trust me on this. smh, Factory of Sadness, indeed.

    Well, this signing settles it. Pencil the Browns in for a Super Bowl berth.

    Wow, the other 31 teams must be trembling in their cleats now !!!!!!!
