The former UC Davis standout will give Lee, a three-time All-Pro, some relief during training camp after he broke his own school record by averaging 44.5 yards per punt last year. Schmidt could also give placekicker Phil Dawson, 38, a breather this summer: He handled kickoff duties in college and had 34 touchbacks in 2012. Schmidt's signing was first reported by the Baltimore Sun.
