BEREA, Ohio - The Cleveland Browns on Tuesday agreed to terms on a contract with Billy Cundiff.
Cundiff, a 6-1, 212-pound kicker in his eighth NFL season out of Drake, has appeared in 106 career regular-season contests. He has connected on 139 of 184 (75.5 percent) career field-goal attempts and 217 of 218 (99.5 percent) extra points. He has scored 634 career points in the regular season and has a career-long field goal of 56 yards. In postseason play, Cundiff is 12 of 14 (85.7 percent) on field goals and 14 of 14 on PATs, for 50 points.
Cundiff re-joins the Browns, where he appeared in five games during the 2009 season. During that time, he made all four field-goal tries, including an 18-yard game-winning field goal with 22 seconds remaining in a 6-3 victory over Buffalo at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
A first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler in 2010, Cundiff was originally signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2002 and spent four seasons (2002-05) with the Cowboys. He has also appeared in games with New Orleans (2006), Baltimore (2009-11) and Washington (2012). He spent the 2013 preseason with the New York Jets, where he connected on all three of his field-goal attempts. He was waived on Aug. 28.
Cundiff set 15 school records at Drake and seven Pioneer Football League records during his collegiate career. He also played three years on the school’s basketball team. Cundiff attended Harlan Community High School in Harlan, Iowa.
