Rams Swipe Player From Browns to Take Over Starting Role

The Los Angeles Rams poached kicker Lucas Havrisik from the Cleveland Browns practice squad on Tuesday, signing him to replace veteran Brett Maher. 

Maher missed multiple field goals for a third time this season during the Rams’ 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  

Maher hit his field goals at just a 73.9% clip while with the Rams and also missed an extra point, leading to his release. 

Havrisik was signed as a backup option for the Browns after trading for veteran kicker Dustin Hopkins and cutting ties with former fourth-round pick Cade York.

The Browns made the tough decision to part ways with York this offseason, trading for Hopkins to replace him.  

With a pair of 54-yard field goals against the Colts, Hopkins became the first kicker to ever convert 50-plus-yard kicks in five consecutive games.

The Browns moved to 4-2 with a victory against the Colts and have been able to do so despite some very significant injuries.
