Browns sign Spencer Lanning, some punter cover


‘Tis the season to sign spare punters and kickers for offseason cover, and the Browns are in on it too.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, they signed former camp-hand Spencer Lanning Wednesday.

Lanning was in training camp with them last year, but could carve out a more permanent role since incumbent punter Reggie Hodges is slated to become an unrestricted free agent.

The former South Carolina standout kicked and punted in college. Lanning also did time with the Jets and Jaguars and the UFL last year.
