University of Albany's Chris Lynch Excited To Report To Cleveland Browns' 3 Day MiniCamp - UAlbany Sports 2009

Like a lot of football fans, Chris Lynch watched the NFL draft on TV. He didn't expect to hear his name called, and it wasn't, but that didn't keep him from getting his shot at pro football.

Lynch, a punter for the University of Albany, agreed to report to the Cleveland Browns' three-day minicamp beginning Friday.

"I'm excited," said Lynch, a Lindenhurst native. "Any team that gave me an opportunity I'd be excited about."

Lynch, 22, led the Northeast League with a 40.9-yard average..... among Football Championship Subdivision punters. His assets include a 36.6 net punting average. He also was the holder.

Punters rarely are drafted. Two were picked this year, both in later rounds, so Lynch figured he would wind up trying to catch on somewhere as a free agent.
