CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns aren’t ready to kick Chase McLaughlin aside just yet.

After choosing not to tender McLaughlin as a restricted free agent last month, Cleveland re-signed the kicker.

McLaughlin made 16 of 21 field-goal attempts last season, but his struggles down the stretch — 4 of 9 in his last five games — had the Browns looking for other options.

They don’t have a better one yet, so they're bringing back the 26-year-old to compete with Chris Blewitt, who is also on the roster.

The Browns could still add another kicker in free agency or the draft.
