The Sports Xchange

The Denver Broncos claimed punter Spencer Lanning off waivers on Friday.

Lanning had been waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.

The Buccaneers had claimed Lanning off waivers June 9 from the Cleveland Browns, who had waived him after they had acquired Andy Lee from the San Francisco 49ers.

Lanning spent the last two seasons with the Browns, averaging 44.1 yards on 177 punts, with a net average of 38.6.

Lanning and punter Karl Schmitz essentially traded places. The Bucs signed Schmitz on Monday after the Broncos had waived him.

Lanning figures to compete against incumbent Britton Colquitt, who recently accepted a pay cut.
