CLEVELAND — Two weeks ago, Browns punter Jamie Gillan was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, but with his continued success on the field, The Scottish Hammer has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month.
In four games, Gillan tied for second in the AFC with 11 punts inside the 20, the second-most ever in the month of September in Browns’ franchise history. Those 11 punts have also tied for the fourth-most in any month in franchise history.
Gillan helped secure the Browns 2-2 record in September and place them in first place in the AFC North by limiting opponents to just 19 punt return yards and forcing 10 fair catches.
The 22-year-old from Inverness, Scotland is the first Browns player to win an AFC Player of the Month award since linebacker D’Qwell Jackson won the award in 2011. He is the first Browns player to be named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month since Josh Cribbs in 2009.
