Cleveland Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez reacts after missing an extra point during the second half of an NFL football game against the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans Sunday Sept. 16 2018

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was first to report the news.

Then after falling behind by three, the Browns moved into range for the tie and again Gonzalez missed, capping off the worst game of his career.

As widely expected, the Cleveland Browns have a new placekicker.

Joseph is a rookie out of Florida Atlantic University that did not make the Miami Dolphins team.

Of course, Gonzalez was sacked by the Cleveland Browns on Monday after missing several key kicks during Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Nevertheless, Joseph is set to become Cleveland's kicker of the hour.

Zane Gonzalez was attacked mercilessly on Twitter after the Cleveland Browns fell to 0-1-1 on Sunday, which is a surprise given the fact that he is not the Zane Gonzalez who missed two field goals and and a pair of extra points in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

"Gonzalez has been kicking with a groin injury that required an MRI on Monday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter". In addition to a shaky outing in New Orleans, he had a potential game-winner against the Steelers in the season opener blocked.

After running back Carlos Hyde rushed for a one-yard touchdown, the Browns led the Saints by a 12-3 count with 6:43 to play in the third quarter.

The New Orleans Saints will host the Browns on Sunday after last facing them in preseason exhibition just past year.

Another referenced Gonzalez's role as a graduate assistant baseball coach, which is an unpaid position: 'Can you kick field goals?
