Bengals' Austin Seibert: Won't kick Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert is a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Browns, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Seibert was claimed off waivers by the Browns Tuesday, however, he'll have to wait another week to make his debut. This news is quite interesting, especially considering he was expected to face the team that cut him just a few days after the fact. Seibert may be lacking confidence after he missed a 41-yard field goal and an extra point with the Browns in Week 1. Randy Bullock will continue to handle kicking duties Thursday.

Bengals' Austin Seibert: Lands in Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals claimed Seibert off waivers from the Browns on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Cincinnati held the NFL's top waiver priority and elected to use it on Seibert, who was let go by the Browns after missing a 41-yard field goal and an extra-point attempt in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens. Seibert could get the chance to redeem himself right away against his former team, as the Bengals are scheduled to play the Browns on Thursday Night Football in Week 2. While top kicker Randy Bullock (calf) isn't believed to be dealing with a serious injury coming out of the Bengals' Week 1 loss to the Chargers, the quick turnaround between games could prompt Cincinnati to hold him out in favor of Seibert. As a rookie with Cleveland last season, Seibert converted a respectable 25 of 29 field-goal attempts, though he misfired on five extra-point tries.

Austin Seibert: Promptly cut by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns waived Seibert on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The writing was on the wall after the Browns promoted Cody Parkey to the active roster. Seibert had a rough Week 1, missing a 41-yard field goal and an extra point, and the Browns are apparently confident enough in Parkey to cut loose their 2019 fifth-round pick. The 23-year-old Seibert likely will clear waivers.

Browns' Austin Seibert: May lose job to Parkey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert's job is in jeopardy after the Browns signed Cody Parkey to the active roster Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Seibert missed a 41-yard field goal and an extra point in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens. While his whiffs didn't affect the final result, it looks like the Browns want to get ahead of their kicking woes before it becomes a real issue. Parkey is expected to kick for the team Thursday against the Bengals, and if he performs well, Seibert could be let go.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Misses two kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert was unsuccessful on a 41-yard attempt and missed an extra-point kick in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.

It was not a good day for Seibert, the second-year kicker who had problems early in the 2019 season. He eventually settled down but missed four kicks between 40 and 49 yards and five extra-point tries. Seibert didn't have competition during training camp, suggesting the Browns were happy with him, but Cleveland added Cody Parkey to the practice squad just before the regular season. Parkey may want to keep his cell phone charged.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Has coach's confidence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said Thursday that Seibert is "our guy," Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Browns signed Cody Parkey to the practice squad earlier this week, but Priefer's comment confirms that the move was simply made to add depth. Seibert, who converted 25 of 29 field-goal attempts across 16 games for the Browns last season, will head into Sunday's tilt against Baltimore with a secure grip on the starting gig.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Team adds kicker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns signed Cody Parkey to the practice squad Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports, adding insurance for Seibert.

Parkey kicked for the Browns in 2016, successfully executing 20 of 25 field-goal attempts, including a long of 51 yards, and going 20-for-21 on extra-point kicks. He has a stronger leg than Seibert, who missed four of 14 kicks beyond the 40-yard-line and five extra-point kicks in 2019.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Makes seven of eight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert was successful on seven of eight field-goal attempts during Sunday's practice session, Dan Labbe of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Seibert survived a shaky preseason in 2019, and the rookie posted respectable numbers for a team with a dysfunctional offense. The one downside was missing five of 35 extra-points kicks (85.7 percent, 27th). The Browns opted not to bring in an outside challenger for the place-kicking position, so Seibert is in line to start the season as the team's kicker.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Misses XPA in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made his lone field-goal attempt and two of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 33-23 loss to the Bengals in Week 17.

Seibert missed an extra-point kick for the second straight week and had five misses all season, finishing with a lower percentage on extra points (85.7 percent) than field goals (86.2). He recorded 105 points to rank 16th in kicker scoring. The 2019 fifth-round pick survived a shaky preseason to post respectable numbers, but it would not be surprising if the Browns brought in competition at next year's training camp.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Quiet in Week 16 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert converted his lone field-goal attempt and missed his only extra-point try in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Ravens in Week 16.

After missing an extra point wide left in the second quarter, Seibert nailed a 47-yard field goal in the third quarter. The Browns scored one touchdown after that, but head coach Freddie Kitchens eschewed the kicking point and went for a two-point conversion that failed. With the field goal, the rookie kicker reached the 100-point mark, which ranks him 15th among placekickers.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Misses fourth FGA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made one of two field-goal attempts and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 38-24 loss to Arizona in Week 15.

Seibert, who has proven to be an accurate kicker during his rookie season, made one kick from 44 yards but missed from 45 yards early in the fourth quarter. The kick would have pulled the Browns within one score. He's made 23 of 27 (85 percent) field-goal tries, and the 27 attempts ranks tied for 12th in the NFL.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Shows leg in Week 14 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made two of two field-goal attempts and three of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 27-19 win over the Bengals in Week 14.

Seibert entered the game with one unsuccessful attempt from beyond the 50, but he proved his leg on a 53-yard conversion in the third quarter that gave Cleveland an eight-point lead. He later added insurance with a 31-yarder. Showing the leg to hit from outside the 50 -- it had plenty of distance and was straight down the middle -- was the rookie's final box to check. Seibert continues to chug along, making 88 percent (22 of 25) of his field-goal tries and ranking 12th among kickers with 91 points.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Scores seven points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert converted two of two field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick for seven points in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Steelers in Week 13.

Seibert was successful from 31 and 34 yards, but the offense struggled to get into scoring position. The Steelers thwarted several possessions with five sacks, limiting the Browns' forays into Pittsburgh territory. The rookie kicker, who has made 20 of 23 FGA, will prepare for Week 14 against the Bengals and their 24th-ranked scoring defense.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Rides productive offense in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made two of three field-goal attempts and five extra-point kicks for 11 points in Sunday's 41-24 win over the Dolphins in Week 12.

Cleveland's offense has sputtered for much of the season, but it was in top form against the lowly Dolphins, scoring on seven of its 10 possessions (not counting a last-minute kneel-down). Seibert went along for the ride, posting his second-highest point total of the season. His lone miss was a 46-yard field-goal attempt that he pushed wide right, which was his third straight miss, before he converted kicks from 40 and 26 yards. The rookie now ranks 13th among placekickers with 75 points through 11 games.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Has first FG misses of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert missed both of his field-goal attempts and made all three extra-point kicks in Thursday's 21-7 win over the Steelers in Week 11.

Seibert, who made all of his field-goal attempts through the first nine games, saw his perfect streak end Thursday. He missed from 45 and 50 yards, both wide to the right. The first miss, the 45-yarder, can be blamed on the snap/hold, but the second one was all Seibert and wasn't close. It was his first attempt this season from beyond 50. He's had potential every week given the Browns' poor execution in the red zone, but Thursday was not a good night for the rookie.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Misses long extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made 2-of-2 field-goal attempts and 1-of-2 extra-point kicks in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Bills in Week 10.

Seibert, who remains a perfect 16-of-16 on three-pointers, could not be faulted on the missed extra point. After Cleveland scored on its opening drive via a 17-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry, the receiver was penalized for taunting, and Seibert missed a 48-yard extra-point attempt. The missed extra point loomed large until the final minutes, but the Browns overcame red-zone woes to score a winning touchdown on their final drive. The rookie ranks 18th in scoring (16th among placekickers) with 61 points and 18th in field-goal attempts.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Remains perfect
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert converted all four of his field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick for 13 points in Sunday's 24-19 loss to the Broncos.

Cleveland's red-zone offense was once again shaky, as the Browns notched just one touchdown in five trips and settled for field goals three times. Seibert connected on kicks from 30, 27 and 30 yards, while he added a fourth from 39 yards on a drive that did not reach the red zone. The rookie has made all 14 of his tries this season, but he hasn't had many opportunities for additional scoring. The Browns' underperforming offense not only bogs down in the red zone, it ranks 25th overall with 16 touchdowns. Consequently, Seibert's attempted just 14 extra points (12 conversions).

Browns' Austin Seibert: Makes all kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert went 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts and nailed his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Patriots.

Seibert remained perfect in the field-goal category despite kicking in less-than ideal conditions. His two field goals, from 38 and 47 yards, were dead center during a windy, rainy Sunday in Foxborough. We still haven't seen an attempt from beyond 50, but the rookie's nailed all 10 of his attempts thus far and has 41 points through seven games.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Little impact in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert successfully converted 2-of-3 extra-point kicks and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's 32-28 loss to the Seahawks.

For the third time in six games, Seibert was held to three or fewer points. Cleveland's offense, specifically quarterback Baker Mayfield, has struggled out of the gate. The quarterback has thrown a league-high 11 interceptions, and the team ranks second with 14 turnovers, which can limit a kicker's scoring opportunities. Seibert has attempted just eight field goals over six games.

Browns' Austin Seibert: Accounts for Browns' only points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seibert made a 30-yard field goal in Monday's 31-3 loss to the 49ers.

The Browns struggled on the road, and Seibert was only called upon for one attempt and he nailed it. He has now connected on all eight field-goal attempts this season, including three over 40 yards. Seibert will look to get more opportunities in Week 6 against the Seahawks.
