The Browns have signed punter Jake Schum, the team announced today.
Schum spent two seasons at the University at Buffalo (2010-11), where he had 119 career punts for an average of 38.7 yards. Twenty-four of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line.
Schum, 24, did not play professionally last season.
The 5-foot-10, 210-pound Schum transferred to Buffalo after spending one season (2007) at Buffalo State College.
Schum and fellow punter Spencer Lanning will compete this offseason. The Browns have not re-signed free-agent Reggie Hodges, who spent the past three seasons with the team.
