Phil Dawson converted 49 of his 50 pregame kicks, even a pair of 58-yard field goals going from each direction. That's about as accurate as San Francisco's veteran place kicker has been in recent years.

So it was a bit startling to watch as he sailed his only two chances during Sunday's 34-0 loss to Denver wide right — first from 55 yards then again from 44.

Dawson planned to return to Levi's Stadium on Tuesday afternoon to get back to work figuring out a new field and its quirks. The grass, like with any new sod, is still getting its roots established and has come up in places. Not that Dawson is complaining about the elements. He can walk some 100 yards from the practice fields to the stadium to practice.

The Browns have agreed to contract terms with K Billy Cundiff, a source told FOX Sports.

Fantasy Impact:

Cundiff is just 75.5-percent for his career, including a terrible 7-for-12 last year in Washington before losing his job. He'll be the Browns kicker in Week 1, replacing Phil Dawson who went to San Francisco.

K Phil Dawson, 38, signed a one-year contract Tuesday with the 49ers.

Dawson made his first Pro Bowl last season, converting 29 of 31 attempts. His conversion percentage (93.5) ranked second among NFL kickers in 2012. Defying age, he's made 14 of 15 attempts from at least 50 yards in the past two seasons, including all seven in 2012.

Fantasy Impact:

Dawson should be a solid fantasy kicker in 2013 as the 49ers tend to generate plenty of opportunities for their kicker.

The Cleveland Browns announced kicker Phil Dawson has signed his tender as the club’s franchise player and tight end Evan Moore has signed his restricted FA tender.

Fantasy Impact:

Expect another season of Dawson being more valuable to the Browns than fantasy owners. While Moore is talented, he's once again going to take a secondary role to Ben Watson.

The Browns lost a 35-27 decision to Detroit on Saturday, but quarterback Jake Delhomme had another good performance. Delhomme was 20 of 25 for 152 yards and a TD for the Browns, whose quick-strike, no-huddle offense found a lot of holes in Detroit’s defense.

One player Delhomme utilized was Josh Cribbs, who had a leaping, 30-yard catch along the sideline that set up a TD toward the end of the first half.

Cleveland rookie quarterback Colt McCoy fumbled on his first drive midway through the fourth quarter to set up a lead-padding touchdown for the Lions. Overall McCoy was 10 of 14 for 76 yards.

Cleveland led 24-14 at halftime after Phil Dawson made his first of two field goals, Eric Wright returned Kevin Smith’s fumble 44 yards for a score, Delhomme tossed a short pass to Lawrence Vickers and Peyton Hillis had a 1-yard TD with 24 seconds left in the half.

Fantasy Impact:

The Browns PK position could have some value if the offense improves this season.
