The Cleveland Browns signed kicker Ross Martin, the team announced Thursday.

Martin, 24, was participating at Cleveland’s minicamp this week on a tryout basis. Kicker Zane Gonzalez, a seventh-round draft pick in 2017, is entering his second season with the Browns.

An undrafted free agent out of Duke in 2016, Martin spent the past two training camps with the New York Jets. He was released by New York in August 2016 and was among the final cuts in September last season.

Martin set a number of career records at Duke, including field goals made (78), field goals attempted (93), field goal percentage (.893), PATs (196) and total points (430).

To clear a roster spot for Martin, the Browns waived linebacker DeMarquis Gates, who was signed by the club on May 22.
