The Cleveland Browns are set to work out former Green Bay Packers punter next week, a sign that they could be looking to move on from Jamie Gillan.
Scott is a former Alabama standout and spent three seasons in Green Bay as their primary punter and also did some work on kickoffs. He has averaged 44.6 yards per punt in his career and holds the Alabama record for career punting average at 45.6 yards per punt.
This week could be Gillan’s last week to prove himself after struggling mightily to start the year. He is near the bottom of the board in nearly every punting metric, some by far. His average punt is 41.8 yards, which is the second-worst figure in the league.
Pro Football Focus has him ranked as the 26th punter with a below-average grade of 54.3. Gillan also made some questionable decisions when faced with pressure, including an especially costly mistake in Week 1 against the Chiefs.
Browns skipper Kevin Stefanski was pretty straightforward when asked about Gillan and his struggle to flip to the field.
