Browns acquired P Andy Lee from the 49ers in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft.
Lee is a three-time All-Pro, has been one of the best punters in the league for the last decade, and carries a reasonable $2.05 base salary for 2015. None of that was enough to save his spot on the 49ers' roster after San Francisco burned a 2015 fifth-round pick on P Bradley Pinion. With Lee now in town, the Browns should move on from Spencer Lanning. Understandably, Cleveland's trade for a punter suggests it has little faith in its 2015 offense. Jun 6 - 1:33 PM

49ers P Andy Lee's six-year extension is worth $20.5 million, with $7.1 million paid out in the first two years.

Tacked onto the $1.1 million left on Lee's old contract, it's actually worth just $3.09 million annually -- significantly less than originally expected and nearly a full $1 million per year lower than Shane Lechler's Raiders deal. Lee essentially took a hometown discount. He's now signed through his age-36 season.

49ers agreed to a six-year contract extension with P Andy Lee.

Beat writer Matt Maiocco expects the deal to be in the range of $4 million annually, which is unheard for any punter not named Shane Lechler. To Lee's credit, he's in Lechler's class, and a major reason why the 49ers boasted one of the strongest special teams units of the past decade in 2011. Pro Football Focus rated Lee as the second-best punter in the NFL last season, just ahead of Lechler.

49ers P Andy Lee is reportedly in search of a new contract.

Lee was sensational in 2007, but his directional punting was an issue last year and he has little leverage. He's due a $1 million base salary in 2009.

49ers punter Andy Lee may have had the best season by a punter in NFL history in 2007.

Lee's net average of 41 would have been a NFL record if not for Shane Lechler's average of 41.1 this season, but Lee did break the NFL record with 42 punts inside the 20-yard line.

Steelers signed restricted free agent P Andy Lee to an offer sheet.

The Steelers are on the free agency board! And we have our first restricted free agent offer sheet! Oh, it's a punter. The Steelers would give up a sixth-rounder if the 49ers decide not to match. Move along, nothing to see here.

Restricted free agent P Andy Lee is meeting with the Steelers on Monday.
