Joseph is competing with Austin Seibert for the Browns' placekicking job, ESPN.com reports. Joseph went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft and subsequently lost a kicking competition in Miami. However, he moved on quickly and got picked up by the Browns following Week 2. From there, he converted 17 -f 20 field-goal attempts but just 24 of 29 extra points. Since he was unable to seize the role, Cleveland ended up drafting Oklahoma kicker Austin Seibert in the fifth round of this year's draft. The latter likely has a leg up on the competition given his pedigree and impressive minicamp performance so far, but Joseph is still the incumbent and will have an opportunity to compete for the job.
Joseph missed a field goal while converting all three of his extra points during Sunday's 26-24 finale loss to the Ravens. Joseph -- who was added to the roster ahead of Week 3 -- showed some promise in his rookie season with the Browns, hitting 17 of 20 field goals and 25 of 29 PATs. Cleveland may be on the prowl this offseason for a kicker with more experience, but it's not unreasonable to assume Joseph will be back with the team in 2019.
Joseph converted two of three extra-point attempts and connected on field goals of 37 and 31 yards during Sunday's 26-18 win over the Bengals. It was Joseph's fourth missed extra point of the season. He's actually been more accurate kicking field goals, 16 for 18, than extra points, 22 for 26, this season. The rookie ends his season playing the Ravens next Sunday, against whom he connected on two of three targets and missed an extra point in a Week 5 win.
Joseph converted both of his field goals and 2-of-3 extra-point attempts in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Panthers. For the first time in four games, Joseph attempted a field goal, as opportunities have been hard to come by. He nailed two 40-yard-plus attempts Sunday, though he did end up missing an extra point.
Joseph did not attempt a field goal but made his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 29-13 loss to the Texans. Joseph did all that was required of him amid a turnover-filled day from the Browns offense. He'll hope he's called upon more in Week 14 versus the skidding Panthers.
