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.

Maynard will replace Matt Turk, who left for rival Jacksonville. Though he ranked just 29th in net average (35.2 yards) last season, Maynard is still regarded as one of the top directional punters in the league.

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.
Fri, May 13, 2011 01:38:00 PM

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 recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right hip.

Maynard struggled through groin injuries in both September and December, which likely led to the scope. The Bears have not set a timetable on his recovery.

Bears P Brad Maynard injured his groin in practice Wednesday and his status for Monday's game against the Vikings is in doubt.

The Bears are working out a couple free agent kickers in Richmond McGee and Glenn Pakulak on Sunday to cover themselves.

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

Dirk Johnson filled in for Maynard until he too was hurt, and Robbie Gould finished the game. Look for Johnson to be released by Chicago this week.

P Brad Maynard has been sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Maynard's disappointing 2005 season led the Bears to sign Joel Stelly as competition.

Joel Stelly will be his challenger. Maynard fell off in 2005 after an impressive '04 campaign.

An MRI on P Brad Maynard's calf did not show any damage, but he missed practice again yesterday.

"If I had to go today, yeah, I could do it,'' Maynard said. "I'm definitely better today than I was Sunday.''
Fri, Oct 21, 2005 10:07:00 AM

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

"I assume Brad will be able to go,'' coach Lovie Smith said. "You need to cover yourself, but Brad knows his body, and we definitely don't have him as out on that injury list. I'm hoping he'll be able to go with some rest.''
