CLEVELAND -- Billy Cundiffs last kicking job with the Browns was temporary. Hes got a more permanent gig now. Cundiff reached agreement with Cleveland on Tuesday, filling an unexpected hole the Browns created with less than a week left before their season opener against the Miami Dolphins. Its Cundiffs second stint with the Browns. He was with the club in 2009, when he made all six of his field-goal attempts while filling in for Phil Dawson, who was sidelined with a calf injury. Cundiff replaces the dependable Dawson, the best field-goal kicker in Browns history and second-leading career scorer who didnt re-sign after last season and is now with San Francisco. The 33-year-old Cundiff auditioned Tuesday for the Browns along with Giorgio Tavecchio, who was released by Green Bay last week. The Browns have been looking for a kicker since terminating veteran Shayne Grahams contract and releasing rookie Brandon Bogotay last weekend as they cut their roster to 53. To open a roster spot for Cundiff, the Browns placed offensive guard Jason Pinkston on the short-term injured reserve list. Pinkston sustained a high ankle sprain on Aug. 15 against Detroit and is still in a walking boot. Hes eligible to return to practice following Clevelands Oct. 20 game against Green Bay and is eligible to play in the Nov. 3 game against Baltimore. Four years ago, Cundiff picked up the slack when Dawson was hurt. He appeared in five games and made the winning field goal against Buffalo in Week 5 as the Browns beat the Bills 6-3. Cundiff, who has appeared in 106 career NFL games for five teams, made the Pro Bowl with Baltimore in 2010. He made 26 of 29 field goals and led the league with 40 touchbacks that season. He wasnt as consistent the following years, and is perhaps best remembered for missing a potential game-tying 32-yard field goal in the closing seconds of the 2012 AFC Championship against New England. Cundiff was released by the Ravens in 2012 and kicked in five games for Washington last season, making 7 of 12 field-goal tries. He went to training camp with the New York Jets this summer and made all three of his field goals during the exhibition season but was released on Aug. 28. Cundiff has connected on 139 of 184 (75.5 per cent) career field-goal attempts. The Browns relied heavily last season on Dawson, who made 29 of 31 kicks, including all seven from beyond 50 yards. Cleveland had planned to try out veteran Dan Carpenter, but he chose to sign with the Buffalo Bills after rookie kicker Dustin Hopkins was injured in practice on Monday. Graham and Bogotay split the kicking duties throughout camp and the preseason, and it was assumed one of them would win the job. But coach Rob Chudzinski said the Browns were not satisfied with their performances -- Bogotay also had a groin injury -- and the team opted to look elsewhere despite the opener being just a few days away.

TSN was honoured with several awards, with Rod Smith and James Duthie sharing the win for Best Sports Host for SportsCentre and the NHL: Season On The Brink coverage, respectively. Marcos Rojo Jersey . He, the 25-year-old Toronto backup net-minder and Manitoba native, would be making just his fourth start in the past 16 games against the Jets the following evening. It was the word of opportunity for Reimer, who has fallen into the role of backup, outmatched in recent weeks by Jonathan Bernier, his Quebec counterpart. http://www.argentinasoccerauthentic.com/Augusto-Fernandez-Copa-America-Jersey/. - Connor Brown and Dane Fox both scored in regulation and in the shootout, as the Erie Otters extended their win streak to 10 games by defeating the London Knights 4-3 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Nahuel Guzman Jersey . Masahiro Tanaka has touched down in the United States and the courting of the Rakuten Golden Eagles stud pitcher has begun in earnest by a bevy of MLB teams interested in the Japanese ace.

Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void.LAS VEGAS -- Middleweight champion Chris Weidman has a knee injury, forcing the UFC to postpone his title bout against Lyoto Machida for six weeks. The UFC announced the changes to two major Las Vegas shows on Monday. Weidman (11-0) was expected to make his second title defence at UFC 173 on May 24 at the MGM Grand Garden, but the Long Island-based mixed martial artist needs minor surgery. Weidmans bout with Machida is moving to UFC 175 on July 5 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. The UFC hasnt decided on a new main event for its traditional Memorial Day weekend show. Former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos will meet Stipe Miocic in the top undercard fight on the pay-per-view event. Weidman claimed the 185-pound title when he stopped long-reigning champion Anderson Silva in the second round last July. He defended the belt in December when Silva broke his leg in their rematch. Weidman is the fourth champion in the UFCs seven mens weight classes currently sidellined for surgery, although his recovery is expected to be the shortest.dddddddddddd Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez had shoulder surgery in December, and isnt expected to return to the octagon until late this year. Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis has been out since last August following knee surgery, and is hoping for a late-summer return. And welterweight champion Johny Hendricks is likely out until fall after tearing his right biceps muscle two weeks before his victory over Robbie Lawler this month. Machida (21-4), the former UFC light heavyweight champion, got this middleweight title shot after Vitor Belfort was removed from the card in late February when the Nevada Athletic Commission banned the use of testosterone replacement therapy. Belfort was among MMAs most prominent sanctioned steroid users, but has decided to give up the practice. Machida, a karate expert from Brazil, has won two straight fights after dropping down to 185 pounds.
