May 9, 2016 -- We are happy to announce the signing of former Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears Punter, SPENCER LANNING, as a new client of the agency. Originally out of the University of South Carolina (2011 NFL Draft Eligible), Spencer is a veteran of 33 NFL games, with 2 Credited and 2 Accrued NFL seasons of experience.
Please update your records to reflect this change in representation.
In 2015, Spencer was signed by the Chicago Bears for their week 4 game vs Oakland, to handle the punting duties for the injured Pat O'Donnell. He had 3 punts in the game, with a long of 51; a gross average of 45.3 (35.7 net); and 1 punt Inside the 20. He also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos during the preseason.
Spencer handled all punting duties for the Cleveland Browns over the 2013 and 2014 NFL seasons, appearing in all 32 games.
In 2014, his punting led the Browns special teams unit to an 8th overall ranking in the NFL in punt coverage, with a 39.2 net average on a whopping 93 punts. His 93 punts were third most in the NFL, and 51 of those punts were Fair Caught (26) and/or downed Inside the 20 (25).
In 2013, Spencer's first full season in the NFL, he finished with 28 punts Inside the 20, the 8th highest total in the NFL. On the season, he had 53 punts Fair Caught (25) and/or downed Inside the 20 (28). He also earned NFL Special Teams Player of the Week honors for his week 3 performance vs Minnesota, where he had 5 punts for a 46.5 average, with 2 Inside the 20, and added a TD pass, and kicked a PAT in a 31-27 win.
Spencer originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, signing with the Chicago Bears in 2011 before being released at the 53 man cutdowns. He also spent time with the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets in 2012.
Spencer is 100% healthy and ready to go on a moment's notice. We hope you will consider him should you be looking to upgrade at the position or have an experienced NFL veteran compete.
