The Cleveland Browns used a fourth-round decide on LSU kicker Cade York final yr with the hope he may stabilize the place for them. To date, the group’s preseason has demonstrated that is not the case.
After a so-so rookie yr, making 24 of 32 subject objectives and lacking two further factors, York ended Thursday’s recreation with about as loud a thud as you will get from a kicker. The 22-year-old lined up with an opportunity to interrupt a tie from 47 yards with two minutes remaining towards the Philadelphia Eagles. He missed the kick large proper, however was granted a reprieve when Eagles defensive deal with Olive Sagapolu was known as for unlawful formation.
York took that second probability and … missed large left. The sport finally ended as an 18-18 tie (no extra time in preseason).
York did make three subject objectives earlier within the recreation, twice from 43 yards and as soon as from 37 yards. He was so comfortable about one among them he posted video of it to his Instagram story at halftime, which has since been deleted.
That pair of missed game-winners continues a regarding preseason for York, who went 0-for-2 on subject objectives with misses from 46 and 49 yards within the Browns’ different two preseason video games.
After Thursday’s recreation, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski reportedly stated the group had little interest in bringing in competitors for York, who stays the one kicker on its roster. That is not what some Browns followers are going to need to hear, and you may solely marvel what number of misses York can put up earlier than it is not true.
The Browns at the moment sit at 1-1-1 in preseason, with another recreation remaining towards the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs earlier than their common season opener towards the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 10.
