CLEVELAND BROWNS (8-9)
CAMP SITE: Berea, Ohio
LAST YEAR: Expected to make a run at the AFC title, the Browns flopped. There was distracting drama, costly injuries and questionable strategy as coach Kevin Stefanski's second season was completely opposite from his first, when the Browns won a playoff game.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Cade York has already kicked out his competition with the Browns.
Cleveland released kickers Chase McLaughlin and Chris Blewitt on Monday, two days after selecting York, one of college football's best kickers, in the fourth round of the NFL draft to upgrade its wayward kicking game.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns aren't ready to kick Chase McLaughlin aside just yet.
After choosing not to tender McLaughlin as a restricted free agent last month, Cleveland re-signed the kicker on Tuesday and could have him back for a second season after an up-and-down first one.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns filled a major need, signing free agent punter Corey Bojorquez to a two-year contract on Monday.
Bojorquez spent last season with Green Bay. He averaged 46.5 yards on 53 punts, including a season-best 82 yarder for the Packers.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets signed former Cowboys and Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein to a one-year deal, setting up a potential training camp competition between proven veterans.
The 34-year-old Zuerlein, nicknamed “Greg the Leg,” heads to New York after spending the last two seasons in Dallas.

Cleveland at Pittsburgh, 8:15 p.m. EST. The AFC North looked like one of the better divisions in football earlier in the year, but has descended into mediocrity with Pittsburgh (7-7-1), Cleveland (7-8) and Baltimore (8-8) hovering around .500.

New faces: DE Jadeveon Clowney, LB Anthony Walker Jr., S John Johnson III, DE Takk McKinley, CB Troy Hill, DT Malik Jackson, DT Andrew Billings, rookie CB Greg Newsome II, rookie LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, K Chase McLaughlin.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns' kicking competition wasn't decided by makes or misses.
An injury knocked out Cody Parkey.
Parkey was placed on injured reserve Monday with a quadriceps injury, ending his 2020 season and seeming to point to Chase McLaughlin at least beginning the season as Cleveland's kicker.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets cut six players, including wide receiver Josh Doctson, among a flurry of moves before the team's first rookie minicamp practice under new coach Robert Saleh on Friday...
