The Browns signed rookie Greg Joseph as the new kicker, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported, and the Browns confirmed in a news release Monday. They waived kicker Zane Gonzalez after he missed two field goals and two extra points against the Saints on Sunday.

If you haven't heard of him, you're not alone. 

Joseph was with the Dolphins during the preseason, according to Tom Withers, of the Associated Press. During the preseason, he connected on all three field goal attempts and both extra point tries, a Browns representative said. Joseph is a native of Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Browns started looking for a kicker after Zane Gonzalez missed four kicks in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Saints. Gonzales was a seventh-round pick in 2017. He was 17 of 25 on career field goal attempts and 28 of 31 on points after touchdown. 

The team was also reportedly looking at free agent kickers Blair Walsh and Cairo Santos.
