Browns released P Spencer Lanning.

That did not take long. After acquiring Andy Lee from the 49ers, Lanning had no place on the Browns' roster. Lanning averaged 44.1 yards per punt in two years with the Browns and should resurface elsewhere before camp.

Spencer Lanning is the favorite to win the Browns' punting job.

Lanning, who has never punted in an NFL game, will compete with T.J. Conley in training camp. Lanning has a squatty build at 5'11/200, which he believes is a benefit to kicking in cold weather. He has the ability to placekick and hold, making him more versatile than Conley. Lanning also has a history with special teams coach Chris Tabor, making him a virtual lock to win the job.
