The Eagles worked out free agent P Brad Maynard for the second time Monday.
As an undrafted rookie last season, incumbent Chas Henry was among the worst punters in the league. But it's unlikely that a 38-year-old Maynard would be able to win the job after managing just 40.5 gross yards per punt for the Browns last season. The Eagles also had free agent punters Mat McBriar, Chris Bryan and Jason Baker in on Monday. Mon, Jul 23, 2012 10:02:00 AM

Browns signed P Brad Maynard.

After Richmond McGee faceplanted in Week 1 with three shanks, the Browns quickly moved on. Maynard, 37, averaged 40.1 yards per punt last season for the Bears but ranked 29th in net average. He's more of a directional kicker at this point.

Texans agreed to terms with P Brad Maynard on a one-year contract.

The Bears have informed free agent P Brad Maynard that they are moving on without him.

The Chicago Tribune and CSN Chicago already reported this during the spring. Maynard, 37, is expected to be on the Redskins' radar despite a poor 2010 season. Per the Trib, the Bears will likely target Steve Weatherford as his replacement.

Free agent P Brad Maynard reportedly failed to see eye-to-eye with special teams coordinator Dave Toub at times last season.

Directional kicking was at the heart of the disagreement, which was described as "nothing super serious." The Bears are still expected to move on from Maynard, with former Jets P Steve Weatherford as the preferred target.

The Redskins are reportedly planning to target P Brad Maynard in free agency.

We'd hope, for the Skins' sake, that they'd spend money on a better, younger punter, but logic doesn't always play a role in Washington's personnel decision making. They currently have Josh Bidwell and Sam Paulescu under contract.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bears "seem unlikely" to re-sign free agent P Brad Maynard.

Maynard is 37 years old and ranked 29th in the league in net punting average last season. The Bears are expected to give futures signee Richmond McGee a chance at the job, but should bring in veteran competition.

Impending free agent P Brad Maynard confirmed that he has not had any discussions with the Bears about a new contract.

Maynard, 37, is coming off a season in which he ranked 29th in net average (35.2 yards). Still, he's regarded as a top-notch directional kicker and could be brought back for the right price. Maynard said he isn't concerned that the Bears signed P Richmond McGee last week.

Bears P Brad Maynard (groin) says he "absolutely" expects to play in Week 3 after having his string of 161 straight starts snapped Sunday.

P Brad Maynard (calf) was held out of practice yesterday and is listed as questionable.
