The Cleveland Browns have signed Billy Cundiff to attempt to fill their void at kicker, the team announced Tuesday.

Cundiff reportedly was scheduled to compete with Dan Carpenter and Giorgio Tavecchio at the Browns’ facility Tuesday, but Carpenter changed his travel plans to sign with the Bills on Monday.

Cleveland coach Rob Chudzinski said Saturday that the Browns haven’t ruled out re-signing one of the kickers from training camp — 12-year veteran Shayne Graham or rookie Brandon Bogotay. Graham’s contract was terminated and Bogotay was released.

Cundiff, who briefly kicked for the Browns in 2009, earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors with the Ravens in 2010, converting 26 of 29 field goal attempts and booming an NFL-high 40 touchbacks. He signed with the Redskins, but was cut in October after a miserable start. The 49ers later signed him as postseason insurance for David Akers. He was released by the Jets in August.
