Browns trading for Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee

The Cleveland Browns are trading a 2017 seventh-round draft pick to the San Francisco 49ers to acquire three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee. Lee is being replaced in San Francisco by fifth-round punter Bradley Pinion. Lee had a 39.6 net average last season. The 11-year veteran will replace Spencer Lanning in Cleveland. "For the last 11 years, Andy has been a tremendous representative of the 49ers organization both on the field and in the community,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said. “While he may be best known for his production on the field, we have come to know Andy as a great teammate and family man. We would like to thank Andy for his commitment to this organization, while wishing him and his family continued success throughout his career and beyond.” “It has truly been an amazing 11 years with the 49ers organization, and I’m thankful for everything they have done for me,” Lee said. “San Francisco gave me the opportunity to play in the NFL by drafting me in 2004, and will forever be a special place for me and my family. Thank you to the York family, my teammates, the coaches, the football staff and the faithful for your support over the years. It’s been a great time!” Lee ranks fifth in NFL history with a 50.9 gross average, sixth with a 39.5 net average and 11th with 300 punts downed inside the 20-yard line.
