The Browns went young at kicker and punter in 2019, and both players made the decision look like the right one.
That was made even more evident Tuesday when punter Jamie Gillan and kicker Austin Seibert were named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team. It marks the second straight year Cleveland placed multiple players on the All-Rookie Team.
The Browns were one of just a handful of teams to put multiple representatives on the squad. Gillan was one of just two on the team to enter the NFL as an undrafted free agent (Saints PR Deonte Harris being the other).
Gillan set the Browns' single-season record for net punting (41.6 average), which ranked 13th in the NFL. He was the AFC's Special Teams Player of the Month in September and finished with 28 punts placed inside the 20-yard line to just five touchbacks.
Seibert, a fifth-round pick out of Oklahoma, made 25 of his 29 field goal attempts, including 10 from 40 yards and beyond. He opened his career with 16 consecutive makes, a streak that ranked fourth in NFL history. His 100 total points were the most ever by a Browns rookie.
Here's how the rest of the roster shook out.
