The Browns brought in free agent Ks Garrett Hartley, Zach Hocker, and Nate Freese for workouts on Tuesday.

We're surprised it took Cleveland this long. Billy Cundiff is just 22-of-29 on the season and has missed a field goal in five straight games. Cundiff has come down with a case of the yips. He can't afford another miss.

Free agent K Garrett Hartley worked out for the Saints on Wednesday.

Shayne Graham missed his second field goal of the season, a 42-yard kick in the Superdome, in last week's blowout loss to the Panthers. Heads have begun to roll in New Orleans. Graham could be the next one out the door.

Free agent K Garrett Hartley worked out for the Titans on Wednesday.

The Titans seem poised to sign a new kicker. Hartley joined experienced veterans Jay Feely and Rian Lindell at the Titans workout.

Saints waived K Garrett Hartley.

Hartley had struggled for the better part of the season, but the Saints reached the breaking point in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Hartley shanked a 26-yard kick in domed Edward Jones Stadium, and had a 36-yard attempt blocked. Hartley was just 22-of-30 on the year, good for 30th in field-goal percentage. The Saints' full-time kicker since 2010, Hartley had gone through funks before, and been unusually injury prone for a kicker. The Saints have yet to announce his replacement. Hartley will likely resurface at some point.

Coach Sean Payton didn't rule out benching K Garrett Hartley for Week 16.

In the Week 15 loss at St. Louis, Hartley had a 36-yard field goal blocked and simply shanked a 26-yarder late in the game. He's now just 22-of-30 on the season, a mark that puts him 30th in the league in accuracy. Fantasy owners should be looking for more reliable options than Hartley even if Payton chooses to stay the course.

Garrett Hartley went 3-of-3 on field goals in Sunday's 23-20 Week 11 win over the 49ers.

Hartley came into the game having missed four of his last six attempts. But he was clutch in this one, making all three kicks with under eight minutes remaining in a close game. It should be a big boost of confidence for Hartley, who will be one of fantasy's best kicking options in the Week 12 Thursday night game at Atlanta.

Garrett Hartley has missed four of his last six field-goal attempts.

The Saints worked out five kickers this week in an effort to update their emergency list -- and send Hartley a message in the process. He missed a 37-yarder against the Cowboys on Sunday night. "My leg feels great," he said. "I'm striking a clean ball. Bouncing back, even after a game like [last Sunday's], when obviously I didn't strike the ball well and I know why. It's a simple fix." Hartley will still be a top-10 fantasy kicking option this week thanks to the Saints offense and the friendly confines of the Superdome.

Saints K Garrett Hartley triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $734,000 to $2.166 million.

Garrett Hartley has won the Saints' placekicking job.

Hartley proved his health by going 6-of-7 in preseason games. He'll be a fantasy kicker to target thanks to the Saints' explosive offense and the friendly confines of the Superdome. In 27 career games with New Orleans, Hartley has made 42 total field goals and gone 10-of-11 from 40-49 yards out.

Garrett Hartley remains the favorite to win the Saints kicker job.

Veteran John Kasay was signed just in case Hartley wasn't fully recovered from his 2011 hip injury. Hartley is 17 years younger, has four years left on his contract and has kicked well in practices, while Kasay has missed 2-of-4 preseason field goal attempts. Hartley is 1-for-1. The Superdome and the Saints' explosive offense make Hartley a strong fantasy kicking option.

SportsNOLA.com expects Garrett Hartley to beat out John Kasay for field-goal duties this summer.

The Saints want Hartley to earn the job in training-camp competition, but he'll likely be given the benefit of the doubt as long as he manages to keep it close. Hartley has a stronger leg and youth on his side.

The Saints plan to stage a camp battle at kicker between Garrett Hartley and John Kasay.

Kasay's April re-signing was viewed as insurance after Hartley missed all of 2011 with a hip injury, but special teams coordinator Greg McMahon insists there will be an "open competition." Our money is on Hartley, who is 17 years Kasay's junior. The winner should be one of fantasy football's most valuable kickers.

Saints K Garrett Hartley (hip) is fully healed and expected to keep his job.

Free agent John Kasay was strong as an injury replacement in 2011, but it doesn’t appear that the Saints will bring him back unless the 25-year-old Hartley struggles. Hartley has nailed 42 of his 49 (86%) career field goal attempts.
